Grown like crazy.
Coming on the end of the second summer and it has gone from a stick in the ground to a baby tree that is eight feet tall. Fantastic quality; Stark Bros. is now the only place I purchase trees from.

Has lots of leaves
This tree was planted October 2014, and has grown, but hasn't doubled in size yet. Still too young to have produced any fruit. Will probably be another 4-6 years before it begins to produce.

It died
IIt died over the summer. It had plenty of water so it died of other causes. I have many Stark Brother trees. Most are doing well.
