Malus domestica 'Honeycrisp'
Pick this superior red apple with a crunchy crisp texture! Honeycrisp boasts a juicy sweet-tart flavor when picked early, but develops it's full-bodied aromatic profile if left to fully ripen in the mid-late season. Created by the University of Minnesota, Honeycrisp is one of our most winter-hardy apple trees, showing little damage even at -40°F! Both scab and fire blight resistant, Honeycrisp has quickly become a favorite for the home grower. Enjoy it fresh, dried, or as a full-flavored apple sauce!
