Your new apple tree will be shipped potted in soil for best possible results when planted in yard or orchard. Ripens about the third week in September.
The apples are round with 60-90% scarlet red over yellow, with a well balanced sweet/tart flavor. As you eat your own home grown apples, enjoy a texture that will remind you of a crisp watermelon or Asian pear.
Honeycrisp apples are said to be "explosively crisp, a fun apple to eat and very juicy." Honeycrisp keep well and are a consistent producer of very large sized fruit.
This apple variety is not the best in really hot areas like the Southwest, but planted widely in Michigan, Wisconsin, New York and Washington.
Live anywhere but the Southwest? Go for it!
