The Door and Kewaunee County Apple Orchards are battling to keep up with the demand of the popular apples this harvest season. Steve Wood from Wood Orchards in Sturgeon Bay and Egg Harbor says when it comes down to the most popular apple in the area, the Honeycrisp still tops the other apples.
Honeycrisp apples are known for their sweetness, firmness, and tartness as well as a long shelf life when stored in cool and dry conditions, according to Wood. First released in 1991, Honeycrisp apples were first developed by the University of Minnesota back in 1974.
