I was in Nova Scotia a few weeks ago and we stopped at many farmer's markets
in the Annapolis Valley. There were huge Honeycrisps being offered
everywhere we went. Most were around $2-$2.50 ca each. We bought a couple
and they were two of the best tasting apples I have tried. They were very
sweet and flavorful, but could have been just a bit more tart for my taste.
These were clearly the most popular apples being offered.
