Hi, I'm bringing this question over from a previous thread I started (apple dropping preventable?). I'm looking at planting a hardy (zone 2-3, winters can be -40, Canadian prairies) apple that my kids would enjoy fresh, I can bake with, and will keep in the cold storage. I'm looking at Honeycrisp because my favorite commercial apples are Gala and Jonagold, and the description sounds good. Does anyone have any experience with growing Honeycrisp in similar conditions? What about flavor (I don't necessarily believe _everything_ the catalogs tell me!), fruit production, dropping, disease resistance? Also, the spot we have for it would be protected from winter winds but only partially sunny - would that be a concern? I guess we'd have to plant two trees, right? We just moved into our first house and this is our first planting season, so we're very excited but ignorant! Any help is much appreciated!
