Most apples need pollen from a different variety of apple to set fruit. This process is called “cross-pollination” and orchardists work hard to ensure compatible varieties are planted near one another so the apples will be juicy and sweet.

One sunny spring day, a honey bee was buzzing through an orchard, collecting nectar and cross-pollinating apple blossoms along the way. The honey bee stopped at an unknown tree and collected nectar and pollen from a blossom. As the day went on, the little honey bee passed that pollen onto a Honeycrisp tree. Little did this bee know its cross-pollination between a Honeycrisp and an unknown variety had just resulted in the beloved SugarBee® apple we know and enjoy today!

Months later, when the apples began to grow, an all new variety of apple was discovered in the orchard! It was large and round, with bright red and yellow coloring. The apple had a crispy firm texture and was unbelievably sugar-sweet. Because this apple naturally formed from the cross-pollination of a honey bee and has a sugary-sweet flavor, it earned the very fitting name: SugarBee®!
