Honeycrisp

I have a friend who owns a local apple orchard. Their signature variety is Honeycrisp--one of my favorite eating apples, as sweet and crunchy as their name. When we were in Middlebury, VT a couple of years ago, we bought a 10-lb bag of Honeycrisps at the local farmers' market, intending to bring some home to my parents, whose idea of a good apple is a Red Delicious. Unfortunately, they never got to try one because they were all eaten before we made it back.

This is my first shot at a Honeycrisp colorway. I think I may try adding another shade of deeper red, and reducing the amount of green and yellow.
