Description

A Stark Bro's Exclusive!

Savor the flavor! Bright red-over-green apple is excellent for eating fresh, homemade apple sauce, and juicing. Apples grow from spurs along the trunk. Mature columnar trees reach about 7-8 feet in height, but only spread about 2-3 feet wide – ideal for growing in containers or small spaces. Ripens in late September. Best pollinators: Stark® Crimson Spire®, Stark® Emerald Spire®, Stark® Ultra Spire®, or Stark® Maypole Flowering Crabapple.

I already have a colonnade apple. Although it took awhile to begin developing fruit, it has become a top notch producer. The apples are superb. I'm hoping this one will be just as good or better.

Chose each of the these for a daycare that we are designing so that the children see a variety of fruits and veggies-how they are grown and how to care for them and enjoy learning where their food comes from. We started this last year and it was a great success so this year we are expanding with perennials and more fruit trees.
