Re: Honeycrisp trees-
I have but one Honeycrisp I purchased on M-111. It is one of the best
trees & apples in my orchard; a nice large pyramidal tree. The fruit is
excellent. My question, though is this - how do you go about sending the
patent fees? Do you need a license first, or can you just send the
correct fee for each treee you propagate? I have long wanted to
propagate some of the better varieties of patented fruit for sale & gifts
(such as Einset grape, Pristine & Honeycrisp apple) but do not know where
to send the patent fees. Any help would be appreciated!
