Zestar Apples

Zestar are medium to large-sized, round but blocky-shaped, apples.

They have greenish-yellow skin with bright red flushes.

Inside, they have grainy, white, crisp, juicy flesh, which is slightly sweet with a hint of spice to the taste.

The fruit ripens in late August, early September in Minnesota.

The tree starts bearing while still young.

US Plant Patent #11367.

Bon mots

"To be a gourmet you must start early, as you must begin riding early to be a good horseman. You must live in France, your father must have been a gourmet. Nothing in life must interest you but your stomach."

-- Ludwig Bemelmans (American author. 27 April 1898 - 1 October 1962)
