I have recently developed a severe addiction to Honeycrisp Apples. In a hunt for them at a local orchard, I was surprised to see how many types of apples there are. And these are just from Pennsylvania. How many types of apples are there? How many occurred naturally? How are different apples developed?
This authentic project can start in preschool, learning about the shape and color of apples, and end in college with the study of how hybrid apples are developed. And certainly, taste testing should be part of this project…especially of Honeycrisp Apples! Enjoy!
