If you like apples at all you need to try the honeycrisp. What used to be a boutique, lesser-distributed apple is now mass-produced, and it puts the others to shame. Crispy as a Fuji, with a taste that is both sweet and refreshingly lemon-like. I've never had anything like it. Put it this way: If we had been in Eve's shoes, and THIS was the apple, we probably might have said, "No way, snake ... I'm not touching that thing ... but, what did you say? HONEYCRISP? Well, then, hand it over."

For those who only buy the pointy red delicious variety: GET OVER THEM. They are: unpredictable and flat-tasting.

Do yourself a favor: Try a honeycrisp. They're everywhere right now.

Couldn't agree more! The first time I tasted one was a revelation. Juicy, crisp, sweet, with floral notes ... perfection! Whoever thought an apple could be EXCITING to eat?!!?!?

I am eating one now. The floral hint reminds me faintly of rosewater.

Target sells cute little ones that are perfectly sized to be one fruit serving and are fabulous for lunchtime!

Arrrrgh! Not a Honeycrisp in sight in Burlington, Colorado. And prospects in the near future? Next to nothing. Can't wait to try one but won't hold my breath.
