Sweeter than Honeycrisp

Sweeter than Honeycrisp

This sweet beauty is absolutely unparalleled for fresh eating. One bite and we guarantee you will agree. This apple "explodes" with a breaking crispness, tantalizing your taste buds with mouthwatering flavor and juiciness. Delectable sweetness works wonders in no-sugar pie recipes and baked goods—cooks up tender every time. A favorite apple with children because of its flavor. We've seen kids choose this over candy and sweets! As if being tops in taste were not enough, Pixie also bears reliable annual crops starting in its third year, handling late frosts better than other varieties. Matures late August. Zones 5-8. U.S. Patent No. 13871

Zones: 5 - 8 (-10° F.).
Height: 22 - 25 feet.
Shade Requirement: Sun.

Best tasting apple
Reviewed By: Henry (Bonne Terre, MO)
I'll start with the negative and move to the positive. This tree is not blight resistant and the apples are small. However, it produces the best tasting apples I've ever eaten. They as sweet with just the right amount of tart to be great for fresh eating and excellent pies. The earlier you pick them the more tart they are. Leave them a while longer and they get sweeter.
