When you’re trying to stick to a low-carbohydrate diet, it’s important to know how many carbs are in the foods you’re eating. A medium-sized Honeycrisp apple, for example, has about 23 grams of carbs – and enough to blow the carb budget (although this will vary depending on apple size and weight.
In this article, we’ll help you find the exact carb content you need for any size or weight of Honeycrisp apple using our quick reference charts and carb calculator.
Honeycrisp Apple Carb Content
The USDA confirms that 100g of raw Honeycrisp apple (including the skin) contains a total of 14.7g of carbs, which is equal to 0.147g per gram of apple.
The Honeycrisp apple is typically a larger variety of apple when compared to smaller varieties such as the golden delicious or gala apple. A medium Honeycrisp apple will weigh an average of around 192g and contains 28.2g of carbs (24.9g net carbs).
The quick reference table below shows the number of total carbs and net carbs you can expect in a small, medium, or large Honeycrisp apple based on average apple weights.
|Honeycrisp Apple Size & Weight||Total Carbs||Net Carbs|
|100g of Honeycrisp apple||14.7g||13g|
|Small apple (average 158g)||23.2g||20.5g|
|Medium apple (average 192g)||28.2g||24.9g|
|Large apple (average 236g)||34.7g||30.7g|
The reason why apples are higher in carbs than some other fruits is because of the sugar content, and although these are natural sugars, this still has an impact on the carb value. In this example, an average-sized medium Honeycrisp apple contains 23.8g of natural sugars and 3.3g of fiber.
The table below shows the amount of natural sugar in various-sized Honeycrisp apples and the fiber content that is used to work out the net carbs.
|Honeycrisp Apple Size & Weight||Total Sugar||Fiber|
|100g of Honeycrisp apple||12.4g||1.7g|
|Small (average 158g)||19.6g||2.7g|
|Medium (average 192g)||23.8g||3.3g|
|Large (average 236g)||29.3g||4g|

Did You Know?
Honeycrisp apples are sweet and delicious, but this sweetness makes them one of the highest-carb apples you can choose. As a general rule – the sweeter the apple, the more sugar, and carbs it will contain.
Are Honeycrisp Apples High In Carbs?
All apples are relatively high in carbs because of the amount of natural sugars they contain.
Honeycrisp apples are a particularly sweet variety, making them higher in carbs than most other kinds of apples.
Red apples, such as the Honeycrisp variety, tend to be higher in carbs than green apples because they’re sweeter. The net carb value of a green apple tends to be a little lower due to the sugar content being lower.
So, if you’re looking for a lower-carb apple option, choose a small green apple such as a Granny Smith instead.
We hope you’ve found the answer you were looking for on this page; here’s a quick rundown of the key points:
