Explosively Crisp!

The Honeycrisp Apple, also known in Europe as the Honeycrunch Apple, is one of the University of Minnesota's best apples. They are widely grown around the world. Millions have been sold to people who love the well-balanced sweet-tart taste, and explosively crisp, juicy texture.

Apples-Honeycrisp-main-imageHoneycrisp was named the Minnesota State Fruit in 2006. This honor was bestowed for several reasons. It is a great tasting apple. It is a very popular apple. And, it helped revive a declining apple growing industry and brought much needed revenue to small to medium sized, family-run orchards. Because of the broad appeal of Honeycrisp's flavor and texture, it sells at a premium price.

The Honeycrisp Apple was even selected as one of the top 25 innovations in over a decade in the 2006 Better World Report. This report, by the Association of University Technology Managers, honors significant academic research and technology transfer that has changed our way of life. It honors developments that have made the world a better place.
