They are my favorite! Unfortunately the orchard where we normally pick lost almost all of theirs in a windstorm we had last spring. None for me this year.

They are my favorite apples.

I have been getting them here in South Florida for the last 3 years.

I found them on Friday for the first time this year.

I have been eating them like crazy.

You have very good taste.

I agree. Just had some fresh ones yesterday. Kids ate 2 each after having lunch. They ate them all the way down to the seeds.

Honeycrisp are my favorites. They're so huge, juicy, and sweet! I usually just eat half of one at a time, with peanut butter.

Silly question... What is their texture like? Grainy, soft, firm...?

I love apples but I am very picky about the texture of them.

We usually get Gala and these taste similar in texture to me but sweeter.

I tried these for the first time this year and agree, WOW! DS thinks they are too sweet but DD & I love them! The first batch was as big as a baby's head and delicious. The next batch were smaller and not quite as sweet.

They are our favorite! There is this gorgonzola cheese spread we got at Trader Joes and it's delicious when spread on a slice of honeycrisp apple!

Crisp

I am also picky about texture and that's why I love these.

We bought a bushel at the farmers market (around 42-48lbs) and I just used the rest to make applesauce the other day. YUM! I usually just make applesauce to use in baking, but we will just be eating this batch. It's too good for baking.

Ah...the rest of America is discovering this gem, created at the University of Minnesota. It's excellent. Crisp and sweet.

Another good one, although harder to find outside of Minnesota, is Sweet Tango. OMG. Makes a Honeycrisp seem boring. LOL!

They're crispy. LOL I can't stand a mushy apple (ie McIntosh). Blech.

Have any of you ever had an apple called Pink Lady? The farmer we bought the apples from said he will be getting those and they are a popular one too. Are they similar to honey crisp? Any good for baking?
