Where Does the Honeycrisp Apple Tree Grow Best?
The Honeycrisp grows best when planted in full sun in a loamy, well-drained soil with a pH between 6 and 7. Because of its compact growth habit, it would do well as a stand-alone accent in your garden or planted with small shrubs for definition. It requires 800 chill hours and is best grown in Growing Zones 3-8.
Is the Honeycrisp Apple Tree Easy to Grow Organically?
It is easy to grow the Honeycrisp Apple Tree organically because it's disease-resistant. Add an organic nitrogen-based fertilizer (such as manure) at the beginning of each growing season for a higher fruit yield, and use a wire screen to discourage pests.
How Much Fruit Will I Get?
This is a small tree, but a heavy producer. At a mature height of only 10-15 feet, your Honeycrisp Apple Tree can produce up to 200 pounds of apples per year. That's more than enough to eat, store, and share.
What Do Honeycrisp Apples Taste Like?
The Honeycrisp apple is known for its sweetness, firmness, and tartness, making it an ideal apple for eating raw. It is also considered to be the perfect dessert apple when added to cakes, pies, and crisps. It boasts a relatively long shelf life of at least 6 months when stored in a cool, dry place.
Pollination and Fruiting Season
The Honeycrisp needs a pollinator such as the Gravenstein, Jonagold or even another Honeycrisp tree for cross-pollination. The harvest season ranges from early-September to mid-October. They fruit doesn’t immediately drop when ripe, so you can take your time in picking it.
Best Time to Plant
Plant in the fall to give your tree a better chance since there is less competition from top soil plants.
