My family had an apple tasting test at home with a variety of apples to choose from. Everyone choose the Breaburn Apple as a favorite. Let's hope that your Break Star pleases us.

To insure we'd always have a Braeburn. Our first one is still in good shape, but I noticed something amiss on his trunk so I ordered another to have it covered, just in case.

Deer tolerance?
VickiGene on Sep 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Sad to say, but apples of ALL kinds are "deer candy." If you have deer in your area, you can take some preventive measures to keep them (and rabbits) out of your fruit trees. This works quite well:

Are the BraeStar's self fertile similar to Braeburn?
NTrav on Aug 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: BraeStar requires a pollinator in the form of another early-blooming variety such as Cortland, Lodi, or McIntosh.
Will this pollinate a Starkrimson?? Gala Apple?
Melissa P on Jul 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: BraeStar is an early-season bloomer and Gala is a mid-season bloomer, but they will typically have overlapping bloom times, so they will be able to cross-pollinate one another.
Will a Jon-A-Red pollinate a Braestar?
Vina M on May 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, those two varieties will cross-pollinate for fruit production.

Stark BraeStar Apple
This is the first year for the tree and it is blooming nicely and appears to be a healthy tree. It isn't time in our part of the county for fruit to appear yet.
