Honeycrisp Apple Tree
Sometimes the name of an apple says it all. Honeycrisp apples are honey sweet, with a touch of tart, and amazingly crisp.
The Honeycrisp apple set themselves apart from other apples in many ways. Honeycrisp apples have what we call their "Explosively Crisp" texture and are juicy created by the large cells that explode with juice in your mouth.
Kids love the taste,and it’s easy to see why this recent variety has continued to grow in popularity.
Another strong benefit of 'Honeycrisp' Apples is their amazing storage life. Outstanding flavor and texture can be maintained for at least seven months in refrigerated storage without atmosphere modification.
Think of it. You can have a great apple to pick and then store for more than half the year!
- Planting fruit trees is one of the best things you can do on your homestead.
They take minimal care once they get established and will produce year after year. Even if you have a very small space you can still plant dwarf trees or grow espaliered trees in pots. If you have more space, fruit trees can become integral parts of a productive food forest. No matter who you are, you need to plant fruit trees!
After your fruit tree and any other plants have been planted, make sure to add mulch around it. Don’t pile the mulch up close to the trunk. Instead, spread the mulch all the way to the drip line of the tree. This will kill grass and break down and provide nutrients to your new fruit tree.
