Honeycrisp Apple Season Hits West Michigan!
West Michigan is home to dozens of delicious varieties of apples, but nothing creates chaos quite like Honeycrisp apples.
West Michigan's Honeycrisp apple harvest is just getting started.
See which orchards have Honeycrisps and when they'll be ready to pick!
Most orchards are expecting Honeycrisps to really get going in around two weeks, but one orchard has plans to start picking them this weekend. Expect a little competition if you are determined to be among the first to bring some home.
Some orchards are just now starting to estimate when Honeycrisps will be ready. Others have a firm date set. Keep that in mind and let us know if you have any updates or other orchards to add to our list.
