The Honeycrisp is a relatively new kid on the block, introduced in 1991. It has become hugely popular, a near overnight sensation. It’s popular because of its deliciously crisp snap on first bite. Developed by the University of Minnesota from a Macoun and Honeygold cross, it is a sweet apple lover’s favorite. It has multiple color shadings, stripes, freckles and a nice round apple shape. Although it can be used for cooking, Honeycrisp lovers would think it a waste of a great eater.
