Description: A new variety takes over the taste and enjoyment market in the world of apples ! The Honeycrisp apple was produced from a 1960 cross of Macoun and Honeygold , as part of the University of Minnesota apple breeding program by P . L . Elliott . . . The orchards of Door County continue to be an important industry . Though the wonderful cherries are most often associated with Door County , apples are also grown in abundance . . . when theres a Honeycrisp apple tree in bloom the wait until harvest cant pass quickly enough . A recent addition to the Door County orchards , the Honeycrisp is attracting a lot of attention and drawing crowds clamoring for more . And more they will have , as the local orchards rush to get trees established to meet the demand . Richard Weidman , of the U of WI Experiment Station claims the Honeycrisp apple is a " Midwest success story . " In an industry increasingly dominated by recent imports the Gala from New Zealand , the Fuji from Japan the Honeycrisp is making surprising inroads . These apples certainly live up to their trademarked " Explosively Crisp " moniker . " It snaps . The piece of apple almost pops off into your mouth , " says University of Minnesota Horticulture Professor Jim Luby , one of the new apples developmental godfathers . A winning all purpose apple , the Honeycrisp offers a pleasingly crisp sweet tart bite , but they are not limited to out of hand eating . These apples also star in the kitchen any recipe in which apples are featured will be improved when using the Honeycrisp . In the history of the apple industry , the Honeycrisp variety is a " new kid " on the block . Developed by the University of Minnesota from a Macoun and Honeygold cross ( the Honeygold itself a cross between the Golden Delicious and Haralson ) , the new apple variety was introduced in 1991 . Luby believes the Honeycrisp to be " the best , most exciting apple weve ever introduced . " Weidman wholeheartedly agrees .
