I love HoneyKrisp apples and thought a smaller fruit would be the way to go for my family. I bought this with Gravenstein and Red Rome Beauty.

I have a commercial orchard and these apples will appeal to a wide audience, especially children. Since parents tend to shop with their children, if I have an apple the kids will like, parents will tend to buy more than they would on their own.

What is a good pollinator for a cinnamon spice tree if you live in zone 10B?
Claire O on Nov 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Stark® GrandGala™ or Stark® Golden Delicious are both excellent pollinators for your Cinnamon Spice tree. You're on the borderline of your growing zone, so it may be it a little warmer than optimal.

KinderKrisp Apple
The Kinderkrisp apple grew wellm since planting this spring, but it is too early for apples so I can't really give you a realistic evaluation until it does bear apples. However, growth has been excellent with the usual tree care since planting this spring.

Performance of KinderKrisp apple in SW Idaho
I planted my KinderKrisp apple tree in April 2015. In spite of irrigation-water shortages in 2015, the tree grew well. This year it bore some apples and is in good vigor. I've thinned them and will be keeping records on when it ripens relative to the 50+ other apple cultivars I grow. We had fire blight here for the first time in ages, but the KinderKrisp tree was not affected as badly as some of the other apple trees I grow. I supply pome and stone fruits to the College of Idaho food service as well as selling it at local farmers' markets and will be curious to see how well the fruit is accepted there.
