Cold hardy. Ripens in late September or early October. Best pollinators: any Golden Delicious, Stark® Jon-A-Red® Jonathan or Starkspur® Red Rome Beauty.

I have a Mutsu apple tree that I ordered several years ago. It is bothered little by pests and really produces a load of apples. We made applesauce with them last time and it was very good.

This is one of our favorite apples. We drive for miles to find an orchard that grows them every year, and are excited to finally have them in the yard

We grew them previously in California and absolutely loved them. They are great for making pies and for baked apples.

Mutsu Apple
Mutsu has become my favorite apple for fresh eating. It is big and exceptionally sweet. So I planted one that I ordered from Stark Bros and when it arrived, it was well pruned and a very healthy tree. The tree is growing exceptionally well and I look forward to the day it begins to bear.

Excellent Apple
I ordered this tree and it is the best apple ever! it is good to eat and I make a lot of apple pies out of them. As far as I am concerned this is the best apple overall than any others that I planted and the tree is very nice and straight.
