Honeycrisp Apple Tree

Longtime Favorite


Developed at the University of Minnesota, this hardy apple tree bears crisp, sweet fruit every 2 years, but requires extra care to grow. It's prone to bitter pit, which creates dark spots that are dry, spongy and have a bitter taste. To successfully grow Honeycrisp Apple, you may need to make adjustments to the nitrogen and potassium levels in the soil and add Quick-Cal Pelletized Calcium may be necessary. This apple variety performs better in cooler climates than warmer regions. Ripens in early September. Although surpassed by Pixie Crunch in flavor and texture, it remains a popular choice for fresh eating. Zones 3-6.

Why buy a Standard Deluxe or Li'l Big Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula and a premium tree guard to protect the trunk for gnawing pests, weed trimmers and mowers. Li'l-BIG™ Deluxe fruit trees also include our innovative tree support, recommended for all Li'l-BIG trees.
