The Honeycrisp apple season has started and you can order them on one of our sites. You will notice that the early Honeycrisp are a little tarter for those of you that enjoy them tarter. As they make sugar and we are picking the Honeycrisp over the next couple of weeks they will be less tart. It looks to be a great Honeycrisp season along with our other great apples. Remember we have both Extra Fancy and Fancy Honeycrisp. For those New England transplants we have put our Macoun and Cortland apples on pre-order. Both Macoun (parent of Honeycrisp) and Cortland apples will be ready before the end of the month. For those who have fallen in love with the all new CandyCrisp they will be a few weeks away. Honeycrisp is by far our most popular apple but it never hurts to try a different apple like Cameo or Pink Lady. Both for the secure feeling that they are ordered and you will get them and for the ease of ordering once we have our "fruit for months" program. Presently you can order a 3 month supply of Honeycrisp but we will soon be adding a 6 month program. Last year we shipped well into June but depending upon crop size, demand and storage that can always change. We would like to believe that we will have Honeycrisp and your other favorite apples until at least April 1st. Questions or concerns just send us an email or give us a call. As always thank a soldier for their service and our thoughts and prayers are with all our Military Families and their brave Soldiers. Speaking of our soldiers if your soldier has an APO address then we (us, friends, customers) pay the shipping for their apples. For those that have contributed to the shipping program I send out a special thanks. Nothing like getting a little piece of home sent to you when your so far from home!
