Bless the University of Minnesota for crossing the Macoun Apple with the Honeygold Apple to make my favorite apple, the Honeycrisp. It’s the perfect name for a super crisp apple that tastes like honey (with the perfect balance of tartness). It’s also an attractive apple, a vibrant red and golden yellow.

Unfortunately, you won’t see Honeycrisps all year round. They are harvested from Sept 15 to Oct 10th in Minnesota so right now you’ll find them in the Union Square Farmer’s Market and your local Whole Foods. The good news is that they store in refrigeration for 6 months so stock up!

Also note that they are quite expensive, up to 2x as expensive as other apples. To me, it’s worth it.
