Stark Bro's Sale - (In case you wondered...)

I was recently looking over the Stark Bro’s site and noticed they had the Contender & Reliance peach trees in stock… the same trees that I’d ordered earlier and they had kept pushing the date back to an eventual November delivery date.

So I called them and asked them to ship them now, and they were fine with that.

I also noticed they have SnappyMac in semi-dwarf (or Dwarf) for $9.99 and Zestar semi-dwarf in the bigger caliper “Supreme” version for that same $9.99.

Well I ordered a couple Zestar and a SnappyMac for friends and family, and here’s a picture of what came in today.

From left to right Zestar, Zestar, SnappyMac, Contender, & Reliance.

I figure with May acting more like late March or early April, we’re good to plant stuff out still. But I was real impressed with these. The one in the bucket is the Reliance.

Just thought maybe someone might wonder what you get for the $9.99 and this might help some. (The peaches I got are not on any kind of sale now, in fact Contender is $49.99 while that same Reliance is $32.99. But the two varieties of apples I got for $9.99 were really nice I thought)


They all look great !

Ordered Zestar that should arrive tomorrow or Tuesday. Not a bad deal for under $20.00.

My thoughts as well. The S&H on my order was only $14.98 but that’s due to my not being charged for them to ship the two peaches. So basically each apple tree was right at $15 in my case. Less than a pizza…

What size it the box they came in?

I sent the box and a couple trees home with my Nephew, but if I had to hazard a guess I’d say about 5’ long and maybe 9-10" wide. They were packed where two roots were on one end and three on the other.

Might even have been closer to a foot wide IDK, but the above ground length of the Reliance for example was 3’ 4" or 6", and I’d guess the roots to be a bit over a foot in length. I think they prune the things to fit the box BTW.

Ordered the below and all of them are nice. Planning on ordering more today as they have a good sale and the shipping is really good.

I ordered an Idared apple for $7.99. I will be using for for my new apple breeding project.


I made a post earlier today about their huge apple sale as I forgot about this original post. The trees you got sure look good!

Just ordered 10 total… Love the shipping price. These are for some friends and neighbors. I ordered a couple extra… just didn’t tell my wife. Wish the peaches, pears, and plums were $6.99-$7.99

They typically have seasonal clearance in june. Last year there were stone fruits in the $10-$15 range. Looks like they are already sold out for most varieties. They must have less stone fruit trees in stock this year.

That’s very cheap on stone fruit. The sweet cherries are some of the stone fruits they have in stock on sale but they don’t mention rootstock so it’s a roll of the dice.

$6 for a Zestar dwarf seems pretty dog-gone good for a patented variety.
