Malus 'HoneyCrisp' Apple Tree

Malus x domestica

Fruit is aromatic and sweet as honey with an explosively juicy, crisp texture. The fruit is colored bright red with random yellow marks near the stem. This Honeycrisp apple is juicier than most other apples, due to its ultra inflated, thin cell walls that when bitten will flood the mouth with streams of sweet-tart juice. This apple is a popular store apple because of the long shelf life.

Like most apple trees, Honeycrisp apple trees require a pollinator to be fruitful. That means there needs to be another apple tree of a different variety — ideally growing within 50 feet of the Honeycrisp tree — for adequate cross-pollination. Honeycrisp apple trees are not self-pollinating, so they won’t produce fruit by themselves. They also won’t be pollinated by another Honeycrisp apple tree. If another compatible variety is present and blooms at the same time, then a Honeycrisp apple tree will be able to set fruit, starting as early as its second year after planting! Here are our apple varieties that we recommend to pollinate a Honeycrisp apple tree.

  • Light: Full Sun
