Description

These apple trees were specifically selected for their disease-resistance to issues like scab, mildew, rust, and blight. Plus, they will all pollinate one other, so we’ve made it easy as pie to grow your own apples at home. Collection includes three apple trees: one semi-dwarf Jonafree, one dwarf GoldRush, and one dwarf Enterprise. Jonafree’s heavy crops of low-acid apples are perfect for fresh eating, GoldRush’s tart-tangy apples are tasty in baked treats, and the lightly tart Enterprise apples are firm and crisp so they store well in refrigeration. Apples ripen starting in mid-September.

We have a small homestead, and while we are not certified organic do we follow mostly organic methods. It's very difficult the raise apples here in the northeastern US without relying heavily on sprays. Various university studies suggest it can be done, if one starts with the newer disease resistant varieties. I found the varieties in this collection mentioned in several studies and decided this might be a good starting point.

I want to order the resistant group variety but I don't see where I can pick the size?
Sharon C on Jan 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The collections are only available in specific sizes. The Disease-Resistant Apple Tree Collection includes a dwarf Enterprise, a dwarf GoldRush and a Jonafree semi-dwarf.
Planted 3 disease resistant apple trees 2 months ago, the jonafree and goldfish both have rust, why?
Jerry W on May 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Please remember that 'disease-resistant' doesn't mean 'disease-free'. If you have cedar trees in the area, even a resistant variety can develop rust, just not as readily as a susceptible variety would. It's also important to note that Jonafree is only less susceptible to rust compared to other Jonathans (which tend to be fairly susceptible) and GoldRush is resistant to scab and mildew, not resistant to rust.
If I plant two Lodi trees, will they pollinate each other?
Also, If a tree (Cortland) is compatible in zones 4 - 6, will it thrive in zone 7A?
MELISSA M on Feb 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question, Melissa. Two apple trees of the same variety will not pollinate one another; you need a different apple variety with a similar blooming time that is planted nearby. A tree that is suited for zones 4-6 will not do well in zone 7a; it's too warm. This tree requires a certain number of days/hours below a certain temperature in order to go dormant and restart its production cycle. The tree will survive in your zone, but will not produce much, if any, fruit.

If you want a great start this is the place to get it. Planted so many trees before I found this site. Can't believe the quality deference, the others are nowhere close to stark Bro's.

Apple trees
Tough trees. I thought I was going to loose the 3 trees I planted last year because of rabbits damaging the base but I smeared the damaged bark with pruning tar and they are blooming like nothing happened. So far so good. Now I will prepare them from the sicada war.

Great collection
Planted these in sprint of 2016 as wel and all are growing well. Care was minimal - some mulch and watering for the first few months. Since then just reapplication of mulch and nothing else.

They have nearly double in size and even got some blooms on them this year.

So far so good
I bought the disease resistant apple collection in the spring of 2016. The trees arrived in good condition and I planted them within two days of receiving them, following the included instructions.After planting them, the weather turned off unseasonably hot and dry so I mulched them and put 5 gallon buckets with holes by them and kept them watered until the weather straightened out. They did not grow much the first summer but have really taken off this year and all are growing well. Trees have stayed green and haven't seemed to have suffered from anything except a few caterpillars, which I Seven dusted.Can't wait to get my first apples from these in a few years!
