Bought my first batch of Honeycrisp--a patented apple--yesterday at Costco. Ten apples for $14.99 and worth every bite. If you haven't yet tried a Honeycrisp, you're in for a treat, but don't delay...the harvest season for Honeycrisp is short. From Wiki:

Honeycrisp (Malus domestica 'Honeycrisp') is an apple cultivar developed at the Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station's Horticultural Research Center at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Designated in 1960 as the MN 1711, and released in 1991, the Honeycrisp, once slated to be discarded, has rapidly become a prized commercial commodity, as its sweetness, firmness, and tartness make it an ideal apple for eating raw. The Honeycrisp also retains its pigment well and boasts a relatively long shelf life when stored in cool, dry conditions.
