Spur Apple Trees

Spur-type apple trees give you more bang for your buck! Unlike regular fruiting trees (which produce fruit only on the outside limbs of the tree), the more compact spur apple trees allow fruit to form on the inside limbs--bearing fruit from the trunk, outwards. This unique style of bearing allows each tree to produce up to twice as many apples!

Stark Bro’s has produced patented StarkSpur® trees since 1952. Some of the best loved varieties are Starkspur® versions of Arkansas Black, Golden Delicious, UltraMac™, Starkrimson® Red Delicious, Red Rome Beauty, and Winesap apples. Pick a variety or two for your yard and prepare for double the harvest!
