Starkeywhip on Semi Dwarf rootstock


  • Various sources describe Starkey as a Ribston Pippin x Black Oxford cross originally from around the 1790's. Rediscovered by John Bunker around 1993. John calls it “crisp, juicy, perfect combination of sweet and tart, a really excellent apple, also beautiful. It’s sort of a rusty red color with very prominent small white dots, visually very attractive, not just another ‘red’ apple.”
