It sounds like this coming weekend is going to have some amazing, beautiful weather—perfect for getting outside. Given that it’s prime apple harvest time, it would be a great weekend to find a pick-your-own apple orchard.
Apple fans in Minnesota will soon be able to find a favorite apple in grocery stores year-round. The Honeycrisp apple has come a long way from its humble beginnings here in Minnesota. When the apple was first introduced in 1991, University of Minnesota researchers only produced a three-week supply. Now, Honeycrisp is the No. 1 desired apple in America.
There are apple orchards around the Twin Cities that are recovering from a rough start to the season.
It was the frigid Tuesday and Wednesday morning temps that have apple lovers the most concerned.
Crisp fall air means sweaters, bright colored leaves and crunchy apples with sweet apple cider.
