Honeycrisp Apples Dissed by The New York Times

Honeycrisp apples were developed by the University of Minnesota in 1991 and have been a consumer favorite ever since.

The New York Times is back to misrepresenting Minnesota food. Last year, it was “Grape Gate.” This year, they’re attacking the Honeycrisp, labeling our state’s beloved apple as “soft and quickly dissolving in the mouth,” with an inconsistent flavor that fades in long storage.

The paper goes on to shower praise on the Washington-bred Cosmic Crisp. Ironically, that apple is a cross of Honeycrisp and Enterprise, meaning it would not exist without the 1991 University of Minnesota breed.

Say what you want, New York Times, but we think you’ve been sampling imposter Honeycrisps. Come to Minnesota; we’ll show you what you’ve been missing out on.
