It can pollinate my Winecrisp apple tree and replace my crabapple tree Spring Snow for a more dwarf apple tree in the backyard. Good all-around disease resistance with some susceptibility to scab. The taste is very familiar to the store bought ones as well.

SIMONE L on May 14, 2016
In my opinion, nothing beats a Red Delicious, and my old trees are too big to maintain so I am changing to a dwarf.

This is my son's favorite apple. I am glad to be able to get it in Dwarf size.

I have just purchased three of your apple trees. Now I am wondering if all three will be well suited for each other. They are Golden Delicious, Granny Smith and a Red Delicious?
Robin K on May 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought all three last year and the trees are doing well
I have cinnamon spice and chenango strawberry will they adequately pollinate this?
Heather E on May 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, those apple varieties would all cross-pollinate well together.
Will a Granny Smith be an adequate pollinators for a Red Delicious?
Suzanne on Feb 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry! Yes, the Granny Smith and Starkrimson Red Delicious will pollinate each other.

love our red delicious trees from the best fruit tree ever
last years purchases are the healthiest trees in the orchard. We have been so delighted with a previous purchase of the Red delicious tree and when it was struck with lightening, we were devastated. There is no words to tell you how happy we are with the replacement trees

Arrived in great shape!
The tree came with a nice sized root stock and started leafing out almost immediately. I was tempted to order ten more! The tree looks very healthy and I expect it will do well over the years. I look forward to tasting the apples in the next few years!
