Description

Change your perception of what “delicious” really means. In 1914, Paul Stark Sr. discovered an apple with an outstanding flavor that was sweet and juicy with a hint of zest. This fruit will be an instant favorite for pies, salads and your taste buds. The tree is cold-hardy, heat-tolerant and very productive — a dwarf size produces up to five bushels of apples. One of the most universal pollinators for other varieties. Ripens in late September. Self-pollinating.

A Stark Pick! Hand-selected by our experts for its simple upkeep and ease of growing — an excellent choice for both seasoned and first-time fruit growers.

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of our introduction of the Golden Delicious apple, we’re offering it for only $19.14. For supreme grade – it’s just $5 more per tree.
