We picked all of the honey crisp apples this afternoon, big, beautiful apples! Last year we picked around this time of year, this year we are 7 days early. Had a taste, they passed the wife test, as the iodine test method for ripeness doesn't work all that well for honey crisp, so the taste method is best. We use the iodine method for our Empire and Sunset apples, (sunsets already harvested, they were not very good this year).
This is a dwarf tree, planted in 2012 and is easy to pick. We had a big wind a few years ago that permanently slanted the tree from the south west, but she is still a beauty of a tree. Enjoy the pics!
