It's a relatively new apple, the result of a University of Minnesota breed made of Macoun and Honeygold apples. The University still owns the patent and growers must pay the University to get the seeds. So this apple does cost a bit more in the market. But let me note here and now that it's worth it.
I've been buying Honeycrisps for the last few years, ever since they first appeared at my local Wegmans. Seen in my kitchen fruit bowl, this year's crop are amazingly large and as sweet and crisp as the name implies. Every year, Wegmans sells out of Honeycrisp and I'm always disappointed when the time comes to switch to another variety. There is no better apple for your eating pleasure. You should get some......but not from my local Wegmans, please. Go find your own.
