FA 52 cv., USPP 10,546
Redstar® ripens 2 days after Redhaven (+2) and has 80% bright red skin with a beautiful red-on-red stripe. Redstar® has less split pits and is less clinging with larger fruit than Redhaven and averages 2 3/4” with round, high quality fruit. The flesh is clear yellow, firm but melting and does not brown when cut. The flavor is exceptional with a pleasing sugar/acid bal-ance and it packs, ships, and stores very well. The tree is bacterial spot and canker resistant. Redstar® outperforms Redhaven on every level.
