Apple Tree 'Honeycrisp'* (Late)
An 'Apple Tasting' favourite, 'Honeycrisp' is the perfect name for this sweet, crisp and wonderfully scented apple. This variety has become so popular in the United States, where it was bred, that orchards there are having difficulty keeping up with the demand. The apples produced are medium to large with a light green/yellow skin that is covered in a red-orange flush which becomes more pronounced if grown in good sunlight. Honeycrisp is extremely cold hardy and so is very suitable for the growing in the north and with its excellent keeping qualities, picking in October and stores to February, we are sure it will prove just as popular here.
Apple trees are grafted on a M26 rootstock and will reach an eventual height of 2.5-3.5m (8-12ft). Trees should be planted 3-4.5m (10-15ft) apart.
Apple trees are available for delivery from late November until late March.
Please remember that fruit trees do require staking for the first few years of their life, we also strongly recommend the use of rootgrow™ when planting to encourage strong root growth and aid establishment.
