The Best Apple Ever

Minnesota Harvest has a fascinating history of the Honeycrisp apple. Honeycrisp seemed to come out of nowhere a couple years ago, but like all overnight successes, the real story is long and complicated. If you’ve never had a Honeycrisp, by all means, go out and try one. Whether you prefer your apples sweet or tart, chances are, you’ll love Honeycrisp. Huge sweet-tart apple flavor and a wonderful crispy texture. Honeycrisp has managed to unseat Northern Spy and Winter Banana as my favorite apple. I’m happy to say it’s much easier to find, too.
