Honey Crisp Apples
Has anyone seen Honey Crisp Apples sold around Montreal recently. I found some at COSCO in early December that were from Quebec and great,Then some Utility Crisps popped up at Loblaws that were a huge disappointment.Anybody seen any recently ?
Scarcity could be weather-related. At a honeycrisp MO website and they were apologizing for shipping delays casued by the bad weather; they couldn't gaurantee the fruit woudn't be frozen en route.

i believe I have seen some at Jean-talon market... not sure about the exact vendor though...Chez Louis perhaps...
I got some at Costco about 2 weeks and they were average. I don't think it was a good year for honeycrisps. Last year all the ones I got at Costco and Loblaws were fantastic.
The Honeycrisp at the supermarkets in town seem to be this year's crop from France. I haven't had any Quebec ones since late September. For some reason, the Honeycrisps I bought in T.O at the Richmond Hill Loblaw's, over the Xmas holidays were larger and seemly more juicy than the ones I bought last week here in Mtl and they were both the French imports.
I just saw them today at Loblaws- and only bought 2 as they didn't look too appetizing. As soon as I try them, I'll let you know. They are from Quebec.
