Honeycrisp Apple Tree

Longtime Favorite

  • Longtime flavor favorite
  • Red-blushed fruits with crisp texture
  • Performs best in cooler climates
  • Ripens in early September
  • Available in Reachables size

Developed at the University of Minnesota, this hardy apple tree bears crisp, sweet fruit. However, this tree requires some extra care to grow and tends to only bear a heavy crop every two years. Because it's prone to bitter pit, which creates dark spots that are dry, spongy and have a bitter taste, you may need to make adjustments to the nitrogen and potassium levels in the soil. Adding Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium may be necessary. This apple variety performs better in cooler climates than warmer regions. Ripens in early September. Honeycrisp took the apple world by storm when it was first introduced and is still a flavor favorite. Other varieties, including Pixie Crunch, now surpass it in flavor, texture and performance. Zones 3-6. PP7197.

Now available in Reachables size! A Reachables tree produces full-sized fruits, but on a smaller tree. That makes it easier to fit into your garden, orchard—or even a container. Thanks to state-of-the-art rootstock technology, these trees stay manageable allowing one person to prune, spray, net and harvest the tree—all while standing on the ground. No ladders required! Note: Because their full-sized fruits grow on smaller trees, Reachables require a tree support.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. of Fruit-Boost™ Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties (see video below), a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit—How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.

  • Comments: Apple trees are grafted. Mix generous amounts of organic material 15 - 18 inches into the soil before planting. Seeds are a good indicator of ripeness, white if fruit is immature and brown when fruit is ripe. Ripe fruit should part from the stem easily. If storing over Winter, select bruise and blemish free fruit. Water trees deeply in hot, dry windy weather. After 1st year, fertilizer with 12-12-12; 1 lb. per tree. Feed in early Spring before new growth starts. It is very important to not over-fertilize; avoid high nitrogen fertilizers.
