Originally developed through genetic selection at the University of Minnesota, the Honeycrisp apple is one of the most sought-after eating apples today. This apple was bred for taste and it definitely delivers. For reliable production, it’s best to have another apple for a pollinizer. Plant near Gala, Granny Smith or Red Delicious apple trees to enable production. Beautiful blossoms appear in the spring with foliage and fruit growth starting immediately after, look for fruit ripening by late summer.
Honeycrisp apples are worth the minimal effort required. They thrive in full sun exposure (in desert areas, afternoon shade’s preferred) and once established, require only moderate watering for a fruit tree. Apple trees provide more than just nourishment. Honeycrisp apple trees grow to a nice medium size so they’re suitable for nearly all yards. In addition, they can be used to provide some shade for a garden plus don’t forget the amazing apple blossom’s you’ll get in Spring.
