HoneyCrunch® Organic is currently grown exclusively in Germany. The conversion of plots in our French orchards to organic agriculture began in 2020. The conversion period for perennial crops, like the apple, is three years. The first harvest of French HoneyCrunch® Organic will thus be in 2023.
HoneyCrunch® Organic will be certified by the French Agriculture Biologique label and the European Union organic label. This guarantees that we do not use any artificial substances and our production methods observe the label specifications.
An organic apple like no other
The Honeycrisp variety is developed at the University of Minnesota in the United States in 1974…
…and arrives at orchards in Anjou, France, in 1994.
In November 2000, HoneyCrunch® is launched on the European market. It quickly establishes an international reputation in over 25 countries in Europe and further afield.
