The SugarBee® apple is a new variety that owes half its parentage to the fan-favorite Honeycrisp apple. Harvesting starts at the start of October, so SugarBee® apples are available in time for the holiday season.

This premium-grade apple variety is bright with a crimson skin that ranges from 30%-100% red. The firm skin and creamy white fresh offer a nice snap with each bite. Its juicy sweetness is balanced by just the right amount of acidity.

This crisp and juicy apple makes an excellent raw snack but is also very versatile in the kitchen. The SugarBee® holds its shape well when cooked, making it a great variety for baking and roasting.

All in all, SugarBee® apples are a wonderful all-round variety. Here are some of our favorite SugarBee® apple recipes:
