As the name suggests, this early season favorite has a zesty sweet-tart flavor that is juicy with a light, crisp texture. They also have a hit of brown sugar taste.

Developed in Minnesota, Zestar! trees are especially hardy and handle cold weather beautifully.

Zestar! apples hold up well for two months in refrigeration, so you can keep that zesty crunch for hours in a lunchbox, days in a fruit bowl or even weeks in the fridge.
