Malus domestica 'Honeycrisp™'
Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Highly productive tree that bears early. Somewhat less vigorous than most. Moderately resistant to both apple scab and fire blight. In the summer its leaves will often have a mottled green appearance that might be mistaken for insect damage, but it due to a problem this variety seems to have in moving carbohydrates from its leaves to the fruit and roots. It is not a serious problem and the tree will almost always have this different look.
