Honeycrisp ApplesHooked on Honeycrisp
Sweet, crunchy, and a hint of tartness, these may be the perfect fall eating apples! Honeycrisp apples are juicy with a crisp, soft crunch. They are fantastic for lunch boxes and work wonderfully in pies, cobblers, and applesauce. We love them!

The Honeycrisp is a modern variety developed by the University of Minnesota in the 1960s and introduced to markets in the 90s. It is across with the Keepsake, Golden Delicious, and Duchess of Oldenburg.

Honeycrisp apples are medium-to-large sized with a white flesh. They have a light green-yellow background and are covered with a red-orange flush. The skin is often flecked with russet dots. The flavor is sweet with little acidity.

We carry them in both organic and Conventionally grown. So, get them while they are in stock!

What better to do with Honeycrisp apples than make an apple crisp? This simple recipe comes together quickly and will be ready for dessert if you throw it in the oven before preparing your main course. Serve with vanilla ice cream—we recommend Gam’s Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.
