Honeycrisp Apple Tree

Description

Developed at the University of Minnesota, this hardy apple tree bears crisp, sweet fruit. However, this tree requires some extra care to grow and tends to only bear a heavy crop every two years. Because it's prone to bitter pit, which creates dark spots that are dry, spongy and have a bitter taste, you may need to make adjustments to the nitrogen and potassium levels in the soil. Adding Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium may be necessary. This apple variety performs better in cooler climates than warmer regions. Ripens in early September. Honeycrisp took the apple world by storm when it was first introduced and is still a flavor favorite. Other varieties, including Pixie Crunch, now surpass it in flavor, texture and performance. Zones 3-6. PP7197.

Now available in Reachables size! A Reachables tree produces full-sized fruits, but on a smaller tree. That makes it easier to fit into your garden, orchard—or even a container. It's also easier to manage than full-sized trees. One person can prune, spray, net and harvest the tree—all while standing on the ground. Note: Because their full-sized fruits grow on smaller trees, Reachables require a tree support.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties, a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit—How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.

You will also want to remove any suckers coming from the rootstock. Unwanted shoots and suckers can be removed at any time. Also remove any crossed, crowded or inward-growing limbs in late winter or very early sprin
