Apple 'Honeycrisp'

Malus pumila 'Honeycrisp'

Provides edible fruit

Characteristics:
Ideal as a raw eating or storage apple, the Honeycrisp was developed in Minnesota back in the 1970s (and as such was designated as the "state fruit" in 2006). It has much larger cells than most apples, which rupture when bitten to fill the mouth with juice.

Growing Conditions:
Fruit in general require sunlight to ripen fruit and air circulation to prevent fungal disease. It also helps to position an apple where it will get early morning sunshine, again, to dry off moisture accumulated over night. Otherwise, they prefer loamy, well-draining soil.

Raw eating and long term storage
