I ordered these trees for the gorgeous fruit and to make cider.

We wanted a vintage selection so that we can design the planting to appear as if it's original to the property. Also, we believe strongly in providing for the pollinators.
Laura Anne S on Feb 9, 2019

Seems like good trees for the price.

Orange Pippin was suggested as good for my area. Will try a few antique apples this way.

I want to brew cider beer.
KEITH E on Mar 25, 2016
I am interested in heirlooms and just starting with a backyard orchard. I'm going to begin with the hard prune at about 18 inches and try to grow a little fruit tree as per the book of the same title.

Do I need 2 of each fruit trees to make them grow?
Gina B on Sep 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: All of the trees in this Collection pollinate one another, so you don't have to worry about pollinating partners. :-)
Will this grow in 10a?
Dan S on Oct 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Dan, At this time, there are no trees available in this collection. Please enter your zip code in the My Location section to determine if we have varieties compatible for your zone. Look for the check marked varieties. If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us, remember that we're here for you. Have a great day!
What is the average length of time these trees will take to mature enough to start producing fruit?
Hehaw on Apr 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The trees in this Collection will take 2-5 years after planting to bear fruit.
How big are the trees when you ship them?
Joe T on Dec 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The tree in this collection are semi-dwarf, so between 3' and 5' tall, depending upon which option you choose. The Supreme tree is taller.
Will this package of 3 pollinate together? Or do I need to purchase a Golden Delicious?
Madison L on Apr 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The collection is especially selected so that the apples pollinate one another. You do not need an additional tree.
hello, Here in central Kentucky we have a difficult time growing apple trees--what with diseases, late frosts etc. We've thought about trying some Heirlooms that grow better in the southern humidity. We also have observed Standard size trees doing well in this area with no care. Is there any correlation and do you have any southern heirlooms in a standard size? Thank you
denise on Apr 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It might be a combination of things (variety, planting location, rootstock, etc.) that make the standard size trees seem to do well where other sizes do not. I can't think of a specific reason for the discrepancy otherwise. We don't have a lot of "southern friendly" apple trees yet, but we list our heat-tolerant varieties here: http://www.starkbros.com/tags/heat-tolerant-apple-trees ??? Another option you might be able to find locally is a series of old southern apple trees called "Limbertwig". Good luck!

Antique Treasures Collection
I planted my 3-tree Antique Treasures Collection last fall, and so far the Orleans and Ben Davis have been growing as expected. However, the Orange Pippin is in decline. I don't know if it will make it through one year. They are all planted in the same environmental conditions and within 30 feet of each other, so that's not the problem. I am happy with 2/3 of the purchased product, and I don't know what to do about the other third.

Growing strong!
In their second spring, all the trees are in excellent shape and establishing themselves well. Can't wait for the apples in a few more years!

Stark brothers fruit trees
My apple trees arrived in great shape and are all growing. I can't wait until they start bearing!
I've always had excellent plants when I've ordered from Stark Bros Nursery. I've visited the nursery once and hopefully will be able to visit again soon!

I had to contact my brother in Michigan regarding these trees. His Response was "they are growing like crazy. They were fenced the same time they were planted so the deer have not bothered them".

Antique Treasures Apple Collection
My antique treasures collection - Cox’s Orange, Orleans, and Ben Davis - was planted spring of 2018. All are thriving and looking healthy. Also planted a Golden Russet at the same time, which is also doing well. Obviously, it will be a few years before I can report with a real evaluation. Biggest threats to the viability of trees on my farm are rabbits and deer. It takes about 10 years for a semi dwarf tree to develop enough bark on the main stem to be safe from these vermin.

Critters liked them
The deer ate all the new growth last summer Then the lemmings ate the bark under the snow. Looking grim for this one year anniversary....other than that we are pleased.
