My favorite by far are the Honeycrisp. We have been eating them over the last month and now they are sweet enough for drying some also.
Our newer trees have been planted for three years now and this is the second year we have had fruit on them. This Honeycrisp tree has been stripped to thin out the apples twice during the summer. We have still had several buckets that we have eaten as they fall.
The apples are nice and big because of the stripping.
Seems like all the newer apple trees we planted are doing well. Next year we will have to replace the plum trees that did not fare so well.
