Re: What is your favorite apple?
The Honeycrisp apple was developed and patented by the University of Minnesota Horticultural Center, just a quarter mile down the road from my home. It was first sold to independent orchards in 1991. Their Applehouse sales building is open in September and October to sell off research production and we stock up since they sell their apples cheaper than what you can get in stores. They also sell experimental apples with no name other than a number and other developed apples such as Zestar, Sweetango, and Frostbite.
