Heritage of the Honeycrisp 

The Honeycrisp apple is the crown jewel of our orchard - the "apple of our eye"  (although we enjoy our other varieties also). With its origins dating back to 1991, this apple has captured the hearts and palates of apple enthusiasts worldwide.

Created through a meticulous hybrid cross of the Macoun and Honeygold varieties, the Honeycrisp apple brings together the best traits of both parents. The result is a truly remarkable fruit that boasts an unrivaled crispness and juiciness.

When you bite into a Honeycrisp, it's like experiencing a burst of flavor in every bite. The incredible texture and refreshing taste make it a favorite among apple lovers of all ages.

But the Honeycrisp doesn't just delight the taste buds; it also offers exceptional storage capabilities. When properly refrigerated at 38 degrees Fahrenheit, this apple can maintain its outstanding flavor and texture for months on end. This unique feature sets it apart from other apples, which thrive at slightly lower temperatures of 33 degrees Fahrenheit.

At our orchard, we take pride in cultivating the finest Honeycrisp apples. We carefully nurture each tree, ensuring optimal growing conditions to produce apples that surpass all expectations.

Experience the heritage of the Honeycrisp apple. Indulge in its crispness, savor its juiciness, and relish in its unforgettable flavor. It's more than just an apple - it's a true masterpiece of nature.
