The apple varieties listed below are orchard favorites and highly recommended for fresh eating. Many of these varieties also make fantastic cider due to their high sugar content and ample acidity. I've highlighted a few standouts in the "Also Cider!" section.

I offer one hint as you go about your selection: Hone in on the 'ugly' apples. How did such unremarkable fruits find hospitable homes for centuries without fail? Flavor, my friend, flavor.

Product Details

Keepsake x MN1627, University of Minnesota, derived 1961 and released 1991

When you take a bite of a Honeycrisp apple from the grocery store, there's a good chance you're no longer enjoying the original Honeycrisp cultivar. You're more likely eating one of the handful of Honeycrisp 'sports' that are favored by commercial growers for traits like higher red-coloration or earlier harvest.

Once ubiquitous, original Honeycrisp apples are a rare treat, and so we offer this variety with the hope that more people can enjoy a tree-ripened Honeycrisp as the UMN team intended with its 1991 release.

Honeycrisp apples are tremendously crisp, enormously crunchy, and contain plenty of sugar with a balancing tartness. This combination lures you back for another bite, again and again, until you've reached its core.

Honeycrisp apple trees are cold-hardy and moderately resistant to apple scab.

Brix: 14
Harvest: Mid-to-Late September
Flowering: Mid-Season
