Honeycrisp “Fall Favorite”

The most sought after apple currently is Honeycrisp. This new apple is known for its superb flavor and crispness. Developed in Minnesota, it grows best in Northern climates. We have several of our own Honeycrisp apple trees here at Tuttles, but we find that Honeycrisp variety performs better further north in Indiana, Michigan and Minnesota. Currently Northern Indiana variety available.

Jonamac “ McIntosh Cousin”

A cross between Jonathan and McIntosh apples, Jonamac is closer to a McIntosh in terms of flavor, just a bit sweeter. Many people love the touch-of-honey taste of a Jonamac to eat out of hand. The first Jonamac apple was grown in 1944 at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, New York. After a period of testing, the variety was introduced to the market in 1972.  Jonamacs are a great choice for applesauce, where their soft texture yields a smooth puree.
