Honey Crisp Apples

  • h

Anyone come across these yet? I assumed the season was starting but haven't seen any in the stores at all yet. Just love these apples.

  1. You're early by a couple of weeks. Best bet for these is usually u-pick or farmgate around the fringes of the GTA.

    1. I've seen them at farmers' markets. I think saw them at Nathan Phillips Square last week, and I bought some at Liberty Village on Sunday.

      1. They also have them, when they are ready, at the North St Lawrence Farmers Market on Saturday mornings. Usually they are behind the counter not out on the front display.

        1. They have also had them at the East York farmers' market in the past, though I didn't see them there yet this year.

            I just bought some last night at Loblaws at Gerrard and Vic Park. Expensive but worth every penny.

          2. Wednesday at City Hall market and Whole Foods. They are delicious now, run down your chin juices.

              I saw some at Loblaw's Dupont & Christie last Saturday...they were $2.49 per pound.

            2. I went apple picking at the Applewood Farm at McCowan and Stouffville and they were ready. Very tasty!

                Do you know how much the pre-picked honeycrisp bags were? I thought $17 plus admission of $3 per person was too much for a bag of apples!

                  Honey Crisps are marginally pricier at the Mississauga/Brampton orchards I visit but not radically out of line with what I'd expect to pay for other "Large Fancy" grade apples. They're all pricier this year!

              2. I bought a bunch at Longo's. They were really, really juicy. They were completley worth the more expensive price.

                1. Saw some at Loblaws on Queen's Quay.

                  1. I'm beginning to think all Loblaw's will have them. Just bought some from Loblaw's St. Clair last night.

                    1. dudes. one word, please. honeycrisp. one word, not 2, honeycrisp, no space, is the name of the apple.

                      2 words, then you're describing a naturally sweetened crumb-topped dessert.

                        Greengrocer at the north-east corner of Euclid and Queen W has them too.

                      2. I found bags of them at Loblaws in Oshawa, and at the farmers market here too. Just discovered "Red Free" apples last weekend, they're awesome!

                          Just got a big bag at No Frills at Dundas/Lansdowne... probably not the best, but still crisp and tasty!
