Stark Bro's Store
I planted this and a Brambley's Seedling for pies, crisps, chutneys. These apples are firm, store well and are not sweet but VERY good apple taste.

So far, so good
This tree that I planted is only in its' second season so nothing to report yet on fruit quality. It did bloom well this year but I will probably thin all but one or two, or maybe not keep anything as it might be too small to support it.
The tree arrived in good condition the year before last and has shown no signs of problems. I have been happy with all the trees purchased from Stark so far.
