A Note from Stark Bro's on Coronavirus (COVID-19) »


New Product!

It’s Honeycrisp, but redder! This apple has everything you love about Honeycrisp, with the added attraction of all-over ruby coloring. Trees have been selected for color over repeated generations, and bear attractive, bright red fruit with non-browning white flesh. Exceptionally crisp and juicy with a mild, sweet flavor, just like you’ve come to expect from the original. Don’t pick too early or you’ll miss the great color. Use as an all-purpose apple, just as you would use Honeycrisp: fresh eating, baking and preserving. Resistant to fire blight. Cold-hardy. Ripens in September. Best organic pollinators: Whitney Crabapple or Cortland. Best non-organic pollinators: Cortland, Liberty or Starkspur® UltraMac™.

Recommended Spacing

We recommend spacing these trees 8 - 10' apart to ensure room for growth.


This variety requires another one for adequate pollination.

Would the Fuji cross pollinate with the Honey Crisp?
Michael A on Jun 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will.
Do you remove the EZ pot before planting tree?
DGFhunter on Nov 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Good morning,

yes, remove the plastic from around the root. there will be some loose material around the root, that will probably come out and that is normal. I re-use that in the hole where i plant the roots, the roots got used to the idea of the ph balance of whatever was there and it balances out a little from whatever you add to the hole. I hope this helps.
I want to plant the dwarf honey crisp, what other dwarf tree could i plant for pollination ?
Colleen H on Mar 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Colleen,
the answer will depend on where you live. The reason is that the correct pollinator has to bloom at the same time your honeycrisp apple does. Without the bloom times matching, the bees cannot cross pollinate. I use crab apples because they bloom for months. but they are not dwarf trees. We can keep going back and forth but finding a dwarf may be tough. go to orangepippintrees and look up pollinators, good information and bloomtimes there.
I hope they don't pull that URL out. FUJI, GALA, Red Delicious, Jonathan, Lady, GoldRush, name a few. I hope that helps you understand where to look. :)
Why won't honeycrisp apples grow in zone 7?
Jerry M on Feb 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. The Honeycrisp apple needs a lot of chill hours to bear fruit. It does much better when grown in colder climates.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!

when would be the best time of year to plant apple trees in wisconsin ?
brian k on Oct 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Because weather and soil conditions vary so much from year to year and even within your zone, it's best to think of your planting time as a range of favorable conditions instead of an exact time.

You can plant new plants and trees: 1) when the ground is not frozen, 2) when daytime temperatures are above freezing (32ºF) and below 90ºF, and 3) when extreme weather (blizzard, hail, torrential rain, etc.) is not in the forecast. Be sure to keep plants watered if you're transplanting in warm and/or dry weather.
Will the gold Rush or golden delicious be a good pollinator for the honeycrisp?
j b on Sep 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Jessica. I'm afraid GoldRush and Golden Delicious bloom too late. Golden Delicious has some overlap with the regular Honeycrisp. If you're looking for a yellow apple to pollinate this one, Honeygold is excellent.
