I can't tell the difference between Ambrosia and Honeycrisp varieties.

You're not alone! Although the two varieties have very different tastes, they are incredibly similar visually, especially all in a box together. Even our farmers have had the struggle, which is why they came up with a simple trick to tell the two apart. 

Ambrosia apples stems are not clipped, meaning they will look longer, while Honeycrisp varieties have a clipped stem, meaning it is shorter. Additionally, the Honeycrisp apple tends to be a bit rounder in shape!
