(MINNB42 Cv.) PP#26,644

The original Honeycrisp was developed by the University of Minnesota, and this MINNB42 cultivar is their chosen red strain of Honeycrisp.  It was discovered as a limb mutation at the research center in Excelsior, MN in 1999 and since then has been placed in replicate trials in MN, NY, and south central PA.  Fruit color evaluations were done over many seasons , and this selection has consistantly produced fruit exhibiting more intense red color than the original.  Bloom and harvest times are the same as the original Honeycrisp.
