Larry Kauffman wants you to know that he considers Zestar! to have a better, more memorable flavor than Honeycrisp!!

Watch "How to Make an Apple Swan" Video.
Yes, the exclamation point(!) is supposed to be there! It's an official part(!) of the name of this exciting(!) must-try variety which we have been growing on our farm for a few years!

“Finally, an early season apple with a crisp, juicy texture and an exciting, zesty flavor with a hint of brown sugar! Its outstanding texture, flavor, and storage life are sure to make Zestar! an early-season winner.” (Emphasis added) So say the folks at the University of Minnesota, who developed this NEW non-GMO variety. We here at the fruit farm don't think you should doubt their word, but if so, you and yours need only try a few in August (middle to end) or September before you'll be quite convinced! Helpful Hint: The U of Minnesota people know a few things about outstanding fresh-eating apples – they introduced the world to Honeycrisp a few years ago, you know!

Zestar! for applesauce? This food blogger recommends them! After you try it, we'd be glad to receive your comments in the Products Review tab (above).

Speaking of applesauce, have you considered how adding a quantity of pears to your sauce making endeavor - Pear Applesauce, anybody? - might enhance the flavor and acceptability of the project upward yet a few notches? Are you remembering that Zestar! harvest time overlaps nicely with Bartlett pears at Kauffmans Fruit Farm and that they are readily available right here?

More great varieties which we grow here in Bird-in-Hand that are also fresh-eating favorites (just in case Zestar! is out of season, you know) include Sansa and GoldRush.

The boxes in which we ship Zestar! apples are liberally lined with high-density foam cushioning. Each piece of fruit occupies its own foam slot for protection, and we pack the box with fruit that is of highest quality. However, we have no control over distance, storage, temperature, or handling during transit, so if the fruit arrives overripe or spoiled, we most likely will not offer a refund, although you're welcome to contact us about it. We offer 2nd Business Day and Next Business Day shipping if you'd like to take an extra step in protecting your Zestar! investment during shipping. This item is not available for sale in or to California, Oregon, and Washington.
