Unique Features: The Honeycrisp apple originated from the University of Minnesota.  It was released in 1991 and first hit the markets in 1997. Now it is in the top 15 of the most popular apples in the U.S.  Being a modern apple it has had it heritage genetically mapped it is complicated and not quite what was first imagined. Honeycrisp apple is usually around 2.75’’ to 3’’ in size with red and yellow striped (sometimes mottled) thin skin. The cells in the flesh of the Honeycrisp apples are about twice the size of those in most other apples and this contributes to its distinctive ‘crunch’ and juiciness. The flavor is a mixture of sweet and tart that peaks on both ends of the scale and when you combine all this characteristics inside a thin skin you have one of the best apples or fresh eating.  Honeycrisp apple trees can vary year to year as to their susceptibility to Fire Blight, so be aware.   Growth Rate: 12’’ to 24’’ per year
