The Starkrimson® Red Delicious apple tree is our most popular Red Delicious. This Red Delicious variety originates from Hood River, Oregon in 1956 as a cold-hardy and productive offspring. Due to the abundance of quality, beautiful apples, this tree bears, it quickly became popular in commercial plantings.
Ripening in late September, this heavy bearer produces bushel after bushel of picture-perfect 4” red apples. The fruit is used for cooking, drying, preserving and makes exceptional apple cider.
Fruit growers can expect this apple tree to start bearing fruit at a young age. Starkrimson® is hardy and resistant to cedar apple rust, fire blight, and powdery mildew – but not scab. Plant in full sun and provide regular maintenance for the best results.
