Latest Honeycrisp Update
The 2021 Honeycrisp crop is looking great! The fruit is about the size of golf balls and the trees really appreciated the recent rains. It looks like another vintage year for Honeycrisp coming up!
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 months - if refrigerated. Honeycrisp is unique in that it requires storage at 38 degrees whereas most other apples keep best at 33.
