Closed-source Apples?

One of our favorite new food finds is the wonderfully genetically-engineered variety of apple called the honeycrisp. Honeycrisps are crisp, sweet, slightly acidic, and very aromatic. They are about as close as you can come to a perfect apple, and priced ($2.50 / lb.) to match.

But, it turns out that the variety has been patented by the University of Minnesota

Darn. I like my Apples to be Open Source
