Honeycrisp Apple Tree

If you're an apple lover who celebrates that fall day when the Honeycrisp reappears in farmers markets and grocery store produce sections, you might be interested to know that you could be growing this delicious apple variety in your own backyard. With our mature, low-maintenance Honeycrisp apple tree, you can have Honeycrisps all autumn long.

The Honeycrisp apple is a relatively new variety and was only created a couple of decades ago and released in 1991. It quickly became one of America's favorite apples, and if you know the honeycrisp, you understand why everyone loves this cultivar. The name says it all: the Honeycrisp is both sweet (with just a hint of tartness for balance) and has a delightfully light and crisp texture. While most people savor these apples as a fresh snack or as an addition to salads, Honeycrisps also work well in pies and sauces.

With great popularity and demand comes a high price, and all Honeycrisp fans know that this is not a cheap apple. Instead of paying supermarket prices for a few apples each year, why not grow your own and have hundreds of dollars' worth of fresh, delicious apples for half of the year? The Honeycrisp ripens early in September and the fruit keeps well in storage through mid-spring. You'll have crisp apples all winter long without breaking the bank.

Our Honeycrisp apple tree is easy to maintain and will likely produce fruit in its first year in your yard. The secret we use is an ancient and organic farming technique called grafting. Unlike other nurseries that grow trees from seed, we graft mature, fruit-producing trees to hardy, disease-resistant root stock to provide you with a fruit tree that is ready to be planted and to start giving you ripe, fresh fruit. Seed-grown trees can take as long as seven years after you plant it in your yard to start producing.

Once you get your Honeycrisp tree planted, you will have to do very little to maintain it. It comes pruned and ready to go. You will need to have another apple tree nearby, though, as the Honeycrisp is not self-pollinating. To pollinate your tree and get the fruit you want, make sure there is a Granny Smith, Red Fuji, Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Pink Lady, Gala, McIntosh or Jonathan tree close to home. Once you have that set, get ready to pick bushel after bushel of delicious Honeycrisp apples.

Planting & Care

Planting and caring for your new fruit tree is easy. To get started, find a good spot in your yard or a large container. The location should have good drainage and adequate sunlight. For a container, be sure there are drainage holes in the bottom and that it is large enough for the root ball to fit with some extra room.

In the yard, dig a hole that is a few inches shallower than the height of the root ball and three times as wide. The roots need room to spread outwards, but you don't want it to sit too deep in the hole. If your soil is especially dense and compacted, you may need to go out wider and loosen up the soil.

Before placing the root ball in the hole or container, pull the roots gently to space them out a little and cut off any damaged roots. Place the tree into the hole or container, ensuring that the point at which the roots meet the trunk is going to be an inch or two above the surrounding soil.

Carefully add the soil back into the hole or add your potting mix to the container. It helps to have one person hold the tree upright while you do this. It helps to keep the tree straight. As you fill in the soil, take steps to prevent air pockets from forming by removing large pieces of debris, breaking up large, dense clumps of soil, and water a little at a time. The soil should slope downward from the trunk to prevent water pooling around the roots, but the tops of the largest roots should protrude from the soil.

Water your new tree thoroughly to settle the soil. Water it again when the top two-inch layer of soil dries out. As your tree grows and the roots develop, you can water less often. Your tree will arrive pruned, so you only need to prune it once a year, in early spring, to keep its shape and to promote more fruit development, or to keep it small if you are growing in a container.

Fertilizer is not always necessary. If your tree grows well and looks healthy, it probably doesn't need any feeding. If you are not happy with how fast it is growing, of if you notice any signs of poor nutrition, you can apply an appropriate fertilizer once or twice a year. Our trees are hardy and you should not need to spray for pests or disease.

Shipping

Most items ship the next business day unless otherwise noted


We take pride in accurate and on-time shipping dates. Of course there are factors that could delay these dates. These are estimates, and we cannot guarantee exact shipping dates. Shipping live products has its challenges and occasionally Mother Nature does not abide by our time frames. On rare occasions we have to delay shipping due to severe weather forecasts in your area or ours. Sometimes the seasons are delayed and plants take longer to reach specifications. Although these types of delays are rare, we try to keep you informed. The health of your plants is our highest concern.


Spring Shipping
Due to the nature of certain cold sensitive plants, it is best to ship them during months with milder temperatures. Spring shipped items are identified on their product page, as well as information on Northern States that ship in spring. Most trees and plants we carry can safely be planted year-round, but you may prefer planting in warmer weather. If you would like to receive a plant earlier than designated or delay its delivery date, we are happy to schedule what’s most convenient. Just call us at 1-888-286-1004.

What Will I Receive

Will my Trees Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.


Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Pruning & Trimming

Most Fruiting Plants Are Pruned Before Shipping... At No Cost To You!

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.


Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
