Heritage of the Honeycrisp 

The Honeycrisp is our prize apple, you could say the "apple of our eye" (although we enjoy our other varieties also). Honeycrisp was introduced in 1991. It is a hybrid cross of the Macoun and the Honeygold. The Honeycrisp apple is characterized by an extremely crisp and juicy texture. This is an apple that pleases all of the senses. It has excellent storage capabilities and the outstanding flavor and texture can be maintained for at least six months in refrigerated storage. The Honeycrisp harvest season is during September. If you would like to see Honeycrisp trees in bloom, you can often see them during the month of May along our ridge.
