Would love to see the Stark Jumbo Apple again I had one but my landscape guy cut it by accident will you consider re offering this tree?
Barry M on Jan 1, 2021
BEST ANSWER: We are no longer offering this product; we keep the information on the website for the benefit of customers who have purchased it in the past. We usually discontinue a variety because we've discovered another variety that produces better fruit, is more disease resistant, cold-hardy, etc.

Stark’s Junbo Apple.?
We have a very old Stark’s Jumbo apple tree. Why don’t you carry it anymore?

An apple as big as a kid's head!
My family had a Stark's Jumbo Apple tree when I was a kid. The tree sadly had to be cut down many years ago. As a small child the apples were enormous to me. They would be large for anyone really. I remember some apples that seemed as large as my head as a child. One apple made a pie. One apple was more than one could eat. You definitely needed two hands just to hold them. Three apples filled a bucket...you get the idea. This is definitely an apple variety that needs to return to production.

Fruits without a pollinator
I've had my Stark Jumbo for many years. I really don't feed it much and the first 2 years I had very large apples. Like one could make a pie - crazy. I transplanted another very old variety 10 feet from it and it would barely fruit. The other tree was bigger and probably took up most of the available nutrients. I removed the other tree last spring, as I didn't care for it much and this year my Jumbo was loaded. There are no other apples around my house. They are not large this year and because I don't spray, they get buggy, some soot and rust but I just cut away the bad parts and use for whatever or freeze. Not very resistant to anything but it keeps going, looks, great in spring, really pretty in bloom and the Orioles love it, so I'll keep it. Just wanted people to know I've not needed a pollinator on this one. I think mine is actually the Jumbo Supreme Dwarf selection if that helps.
