Not only is this a chance for apple enthusiasts nationwide to come together and celebrate this special apple, but it also presents the opportunity to honor the hard work of pollinators as well. As the company explained, honeybees are not only a key contributor to natural ecosystem functions, but they are the most important species of pollinator across the globe. Honeybees pollinate 80 percent of all flowering plants, including more than 130 types of fruits and vegetables. After all, the SugarBee apple is a unique variety that was discovered by accident when a honeybee transferred pollen from an unknown apple variety to a Honeycrisp apple blossom.
