They are sweet and crispy and one of the most popular apples on the market today, so why are Honeycrisp apples so hard to grow and hard to store? In this episode of Urban Forestry Radio we’ll speak to Dr. Randy Beaudry, a postharvest physiologist working at Michigan State University about the challenges that Honeycrisp apples pose to growers across North America. He’ll also talk about the best ways to store these apples to keep them fresher for longer.
