Wanted something cold hardy for Iowa winters. Also, I really like that the harvest times are spread out among the four trees, so we should be able to harvest from August all the way through September.

Very important to select compatible varieties and I trust Stark Bros to only select the best companion trees.

will these fruit trees grow fruit first season?
sonny on Apr 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They will most certainly grow with the proper care and environmental conditions, but it will be a few years before they bear any fruit. The root system of the tree must become established and mature enough to complete the fruiting cycle. After that, you will have more fruit than you know what to do with for many, many years to come.

great collection
The collection of these apple trees is really good. We got all the apple tree varieties we wanted. However, it looks like some of the trees are of different age than the others. One of the trees had a really crooked trunk, but otherwise it is growing well. no flowers, no fruits yet.

Was a little worried when I received the trees. Roots weren't covered well. But were planted and green leafed.

They are doing Great
Purchased the cold hardy Apple Tree Collection In the spring of 2018. All 4 trees when planted showed no signs of stress. We had a hot and dry summer. I really neglected them most of last season. However, when we would have long dry period I did give them a little water. One yr later (2019) they look great. I expect to harvest fruit in 2020. I would order these trees again.

In the past I’ve had difficulty growing bare root trees , but my order from starks contained healthy trees. I planted all four last spring and they made it through a tough Minnesota winter and are actively growing. Thank you Starks!! I will be a repeat customer

Coldhardy Apple Trees
I purchased the collection due to the fact that I live at 93000 feet in the South Central Mountains Colorado. The trees were planted in large pots and kept on the front deck. This was to allow the trees to grow without being eaten by the deer and other wildlife. The trees survived the Spring Creek wildfire last June. They were wintered over in an unheated garage for the winter. They are currently leafing out and have some blossoms. I would recommed this collection to anyone who is looking to grow apple trees in a high altitude enviroment.
