Malus sp. 'Honeycrisp'
Available generally on a standard more hardy rootstock or M7 semi-dwarf rootstock (understock)
('Keepsake' x unnamed seedling) University of MN, 1991.
An exciting apple that is exceptionally crisp and juicy. Flavor is sweet but well-balanced. Excellent storage life, up to 7 months. Has been rated equal to or higher in overall quality than 'Haralson', 'Honeygold' or 'Keepsake' in winter storage trials. Ripens in mid to late September and stores like a late season variety. Has become an outstanding commercial and home orchard variety because of its explosive crispness, flavor and storage life.
