Apple Tree - Honeycrisp
High Quality Apples on Attractive Tree
The Honeycrisp apples are highly rated for flavor and storage consistency. The round yellow fruit with a red blush ripen in September and don’t immediately drop when ripe, so you can take your time in picking them.
The Honeycrisp will grow to 20 feet and spread an equal distance and it would do well as a stand-alone accent in the yard or planted with some small shrubs for definition. Its low canopy makes it ideal for planting under power lines or other such troublesome locations.
It needs full sun for optimal growth and you can increase your fall yield if you plant another variety close by to aid in pollination.
In mid-spring your Honeycrisp’s pink buds will open into clusters of fragrant white blossoms. The compact nature of the pointed green foliage makes this an attractive tree throughout the summer.
In the fall, the leaves transform into a lovely shade of yellow as a harbinger of winter.
The Honeycrisp is known for being especially crisp and juicy. It’s great for eating right off the tree or for baking. It can be in cold storage for 6 months without losing its' color.
Suggested pollinators are Gala, Granny Smith, Empire, McIntosh and Red Delicious. It is not pollinated by Gravenstein.
Make sure trees you buy are measured from the ground up!
While this may sound a bit sneaky, the sad truth is some nurseries try to make their trees seem a lot taller by including the roots in the height. Even worse, others will charge you for a large tree but then hack them down to save money on shipping.
We sell our trees with the height measured from the base up. When you buy a tree from Nature Hills Nursery, it will be the height you paid for after you plant it.
We take pride in delivering the highest quality plants with healthy roots and full, well-established stems and foliage. You can buy in confidence with our one year plant guarantee.
Our apple trees are always in high demand. Order now before they sell out!
