Zestar! is an early season apple with a sprightly sweet-tart taste with a hint of brown sugar. It has a light, crisp texture unlike many other early season apples that have a more soft texture. Released from the University of Minnesota breeding program in 1999, it came from a cross of State Fair and MN1691. Picked in late August to early September. We are just planting these trees in 2012, so won’t have a crop until about 2015.
