HoneyCrisp apples .... ?zone 7
Just bought the first HoneyCrisp apples in the store as they were on sale; huge, not so pretty apples but once I tasted them I loved the taste!! Now I'd like to plant a dwarf HoneyCrisp tree but find it is not recommended for my USDA zone 7 area ... why... too warm? We are at 5200 ft. elevation in high desert. Has gotten to minus 19 degrees a few times and many years it doesn't get to 100 degrees days, cooler nights ( mile high elevation). Rainfall about 8 inches a year so we irrigate everything. Would appreciate any input from anyone who has grown this apple variety! We grow dwarf Fuji, Haralson & Cameo successfully here.
