Honeycrisp apples, with a firm crisp and honeyed-sweet tangy flavor, can taste even better when grown in your home garden. This variety was created in Minnesota for flavor and ability to grow in extremely cold winters there. Boasting larger cells, Honeycrisp offers a juicier and crisper bite than other apples. Red striped, orange-yellow skin is an excellent complement to the crisp flesh, which strikes the perfect balance between sweetness and acidity. Old apples coming out of year-round cold storage that are sold at grocery stores simply cannot compare to the excellent sweet and tart flavor experience that comes from a freshly picked Honeycrisp homegrown in your own backyard. This apple tree grows to a compact size suitable for both urban and suburban landscapes.
