The Honeycrisp apple trees were hybridized at the University of Minnesota and patented in 1988, but the patent has now expired, and this apple grafted cultivar is now an excellent selection for Northern States to grow that can be purchased from nurseries. The fruit is colored bright red with random yellow marks near the stem. The Honeycrisp apple was developed with the primary focus on breeding a new fresh eating apple that has a tart flavor. This Honeycrisp apple is juicier than most other apples, due to its ultra inflated, thin cell walls that when bitten will flood the mouth with streams of sweet-tart juice. This apple is a popular store apple because of the long shelf life.
