A three-part series of conversations between Honeycrisp growers and extension/research specialists is scheduled June 3, June 17 and July 1 from 4–5 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time (7–8 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time). 

According to a news release from Washington State University, the event is a collaboration between WSU, Michigan State University and Cornell Cooperative Extension, with support from the International Fruit Tree Association and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Specialty Crop Research Initiative Root2Fruit project.

As a follow-up to the 2021 IFTA Virtual Honeycrisp Tour, these Zoom meetups will provide an opportunity to review challenges, best practices and new recommendations for Honeycrisp production. 

The series will be facilitated by Bernardita Sallato of WSU, Mario Miranda Sazo of Cornell and Anna Wallis of MSU and will be led by a panel of scientists and growers across regions involved in the Root2Fruit project and IFTA, plus leading Honeycrisp producers.
