Looking Good!
I just planted this last Spring and it good through a basically "no snow cover" winter just fine and has already grown a lot more. We're very pleased with it. Very healthy and strong already this season.

Pick This Winner
This Freedom Apple tree was the first tree I ordered from Stark Brothers, and I am very happy with the tree. I have ordered from other nurseries, but not anymore. Stark Brothers will be it here on out. Trees I ordered this year arrived in pristine shape and ready to be planted. 100% satisfied.
