Like Honeycrisp, Zestar is another great release from the University of Minnesota. It produces very appealing, round apples that are crisp, juicy and have a hint of brown sugar. Zestar is a fabulous choice for a home grower.  It is resistant to fireblight, mildew, rust and is cold hardy, productive and precocious. Trees have a longer harvest window and aside from eating fresh can make good baked goods. It is susceptible to scab and does flower early.  Another apple tree that blooms early or mid season like Cortland, Gala, Ambrosia or Enterprise will ensure great potential for pollination.
