Red Rome beauty
Very pleased with this tree so far. The tree blossomed in the first year after planting and I have several clusters of apples that have set on. I will thin these soon, so that more energy will go to the growth of the tree. Very surprised and happy to see apples after only one year. The tree is very healthy and growing well. Also, I cut a few scions from this tree and grafted them onto a crabapple tree. The grafts were successful and now a few Red Rome Beauty apples developing on the crabapple tree.

So far pleased
This is my first time I ordered apple trees from stark I was pleased with my persimmons so I thought I would give them a try with my apple trees which I bought 7all together.After I ordered I was reading the reviews on them a lot of customers were not happy and others were so I guess I was taking a gamble with my trees.Well I planted them they were only about 4ft but looked healthy.It has been 3 weeks I kept watching them and watering them have them fenced off I never saw life then I went out yesterday and was very pleased I saw them starting to open there buds I was not in a hurry for them to open up because I live in upstate ny which means we can have frost up to the end of May.But so far very pleased with starkbrothers.Would recommend to give them a try I have ordered a few items and everything is doing ok.
