Honeycrisp Apple Tree
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.
