Description

A Stark Bro's Exclusive!

One of America’s most cherished apples — made better! Our improved McIntosh has more fruiting spurs than regular trees, so it produces more fruit in the same space. That way, you can enjoy more tart, crisp apples with that distinctive McIntosh flavor and aroma. Good for eating fresh or baking. Cold-hardy. Ripens in September. Best pollinators: Cortland, Stark® BraeStar™ or Stark® Lodi.

Doing Great!
We planted our trees last year and it was sort of an awkward time so I was a little concerned on how they would do. Well, they are doing great and stood strong through our MN winters. They even bloomed a little!

Stark spur Ultramac
These are one of my favorites. I put in three of these bareroot trees, and they have thrived. The pruning was excellent, and after about 3 1/2 months, they look fantastic. Now I just have to wait a few years.

Very happy with stark fruit trees
Planted these trees last year and they are over 6 feet tall and filling out nicely. Strongly recommend any of starks apple trees. We have planted 9 varieties so far and have been happy with all of them. They get bud out the first week and usually have little leaves by the second. The roots ariive looking moist and healthy too.

It's alive
I planted it in the fall of 2014. It had 2-3 tiny blooms last year but didn't have any blooms this year despite all my other fruit trees having the most blooms I have ever had. I probably won't get concerned unless it doesn't bloom next year. Growth rate is fair but slower than my other apple trees from Stark Bros.
