Apple Photo - Zestar!<sup>®</sup>


An early season apple that’s juicy, with a light and crisp texture. Developed at the University of Minnesota, Zestar! trees are especially hardy and handle cold weather beautifully. Like the name says, there’s zesty flavor and crunch when you bite into one.


Crisp and juicy
Sprightly, sweet/tart taste with a hint of brown sugar

Best Uses

Excellent for eating

Special Hint

Zestar! apples maintain their great taste and crunch for two months in refrigeration, so you can keep that zesty crunch after hours in a lunchbox, days in a fruit bowl, or even weeks in the refrigerator.


Late August through October
