Zestar Apple


Zestar Apple

Late Summer. (State Fair x MN 1691) U Minn, 1999. Also called Zestar!

Extremely hardy high-quality mid-late summer dessert apple. Medium-sized blocky round fruit covered with red stripes and blush. Juicy and crisp with a well-balanced acid/sweet flavor.

Michael Phillips, New Hampshire orchardist and author of The Apple Grower, said to me, “When you tree-ripen Zestar, it’s fabulous.” Northern Maine orchardist Steve Miller added, “That’s an impressive apple. From the standpoint of appearance and quality, they’re first rate.”

Keeps in cold storage up to seven weeks. Tree has moderately vigorous upright form; excellent horizontal branching habit makes it easy to train and prune. Precocious and annual-bearing. Blooms early season. PPA. Z3. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
