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 its full-bodied, aromatic profile if left to fully ripen in the mid-late season. Created by the University of Minnesota, you can plan to enjoy it fresh, dried, juiced - it also makes for a superior storage apple!
Honeycrisp is one of our most winter-hardy apple trees, showing little damage even at -40°F! Both scab and fireblight resistant, Honeycrisp has quickly become a favorite for the home grower.
