Honeycrisp Fact: 

The first apples came off the Honeycrisp tree in 1967; but whoever ate the apple at that time, did not see fit to release it; and the original tree was scheduled for removal, according to Minnesota Harvest.  A University of Minnesota breeder, David Bedford, saved the variety from extinction and brought it the rest of the way to its introduction.  Thank you, David!!!  Want to read more?  Go to:
