At my office, we’ve recently been in a bit of a battle on whether Arkansas or Michigan is better.
No, we weren’t talking about the football teams, but the Honeycrisp apples. There are two varieties – one Arkansas (with the green skin) and Michigan (with the red skin).
Arkansas v Michigan (Honeycrisp)
We’ve conducted a very informal taste test and have concluded the Arkansas ones seem to be sweeter than Michigan.
So where can you find these little gems? I bought my Arkansas ones at the Adams Morgan Farmers Market. The guy there kept saying, “Best apples ever.” Of course, I was highly skeptical of his assertion, but I have to admit – he was right. They were fantastic!
My colleague gets two orders a week (yeah, they’re that good). On Wednesdays, she goes to the Foggy Bottom/GW Farmers Market and on Saturdays, Falls Church City Farmers Market. She says both of these locations have the two different kinds of Honeycrisp apples.
