Royal Oak Farm Orchard not only grows over 30 varieties of apples that begin their harvesting season in late August and continue through mid-November, we also have some of the best Honeycrisp apples you have ever tasted. The HoneyCrisp is juicy, sweet as honey and considered amazingly crisp! It can be eaten as a snack, added to salads or cooked. A favorite among many, even non-apple lovers - Honeycrisp is hailed as a perfect apple! Originating in the U.S. as a cross between a Macoun and HoneyGold, it took 30 years to perfect before they brought it to market in the early 1990s.
