How the World's Best Apple Was Made

There are so many different kinds of apples in the world that you can't even count them on your hands and feet, but among them all, a few of them have lived on to become some of mankind's favorite healthy snacks.

At the top of the Apple food chain is the Honeycrisp apple, which was scientifically engineered to be one of the world's best-tasting apples.

At a cellular level, Honeycrisp apples have larger cells that contain much more sugar than other apple varieties. Also important, the cells stick together more strongly after ripening than in other apple varieties. These two factors deliver a crispier bite and sweet-tasting juice every time your teeth bite into the Honeycrisp apple.

Coming up with the Honeycrisp took around three decades because perfecting it wasn't particularly easy. On the other hand, the wait appears to have been worth it, as it's one of the most popular kinds of apples in supermarkets today.
