Honeycrisps in T.O.?

Anyone seen them around? They're my fave apple! Bonus points for anyone who's seen organic ones.

  1. I love honeycrisps! I haven't seen them out yet and have definitely been keeping an eye out for them. If I recall correctly, last year, they didn't come out until later in the fall. I remember them showing up at Bruno's first, then at Loblaws a little while later.

    1. They're later than most. Anyone who really likes 'em needs to get out on the GTA fringes rather than buy from grocers. Frankly, I think they're over-rated relative to good examples of the older varieties for eating and cooking.

      1. Someone had them at the Brickworks Market last Saturday. Safe to assume they will be back next weekend. They had honeycrisp, gala, courtland and something else. One variety was organic the others low spray but I can't recall which was which.

        1. Pretty sure I saw them at Fiesta Farms last weekend...

            Honeycrisp at Whitamore Farms - Steeles east of Markham Road and
            pick your own at Applewood Farms in Stouffville - great little winery there - have some samples
            when you are finished picking.

          2. Lady York has them for $1.99/lb. Been eating them all week ;)
