Have you tasted a Honeycrisp apple yet? You’d remember if you had.
If you bite into the cream-coloured flesh of a Honeycrisp, you’ll find a very crisp, very juicy texture and a tart/honey-sweet flavour. Developed from a 1960 cross of Macoun and Honeygold apples by the University of Minnesota and introduced to consumers in 1991 (how come I didn’t discover them until last year??), this mottled red and yellow coloured apple has become a favourite eating apple with many consumers, including me!
