Have you ever been genuinely excited about an apple? Not a caramel apple, or apple tarts or pie, I mean a raw apple, sitting there innocently in your neighborhood grocery store? If not, then you’ve never had a honeycrisp apple.
I’ll say it: honeycrisp apples are the best apples on the planet. When you bite into them they make a loud chomp. When you taste a honeycrisp it is super sweet, fresh, refreshing, a tiny bit tart, and everything perfect that a crisp apple should be. When you are done with a honeycrisp you have the urge to buy another because you can’t stand the thought of living without it. Why have you never heard of a honeycrisp apple? A few reasons.
One: Honeycrisp apples have an extremely short season. They only come out for one or two months max, between mid-September barely peaking into November before they disappear for an entire year.
Two: Honeycrisp apples only made it to the market in the early 90s. They were developed by a bunch of fruit doctors (horticulturalists) in Minnesota by mixing a bunch of other apples together (Macoun, Honeygold and possibly the Keepsake). We may need to get Maury to tell us who the daddy is.
Three: You got to the grocery store mere moments after me and I ransacked the entire place.
