Bare Root Stella Star Gage Tree. Click the link for Containerised Stella Star Gage Tree
The bare root Stella Star Gage tree is a good fruit tree for someone looking for large amounts of Gage and is impatient as the Stella Star provides fruit earlier (early August) compared to other Gage trees and typically lots of it.
The mild Gage taste is agreeable for those seeking eating fruits or those wanting to cook with them e.g. jams, pies etc.
Suitable for the majority of UK locations however if you run an Antarctic training centre somewhere in the North of Scotland then your expectations may not be met.
Compared to other Gage trees, the Stella Star is considered more resistant to diseases and because of its high blossom rate will attract birds, bees etc. This is especially useful if you have a garden of non self-fertile plants requiring their cross pollination services.
Month of Picking: Early-August
Type of Gage: Eating + Cooking
Self-fertile/Not self-fertile: This gage is self-fertile so there is no need for another gage for pollination
This gage is in flowering period is C3 so if you have another gage tree that is not self-fertile, it will pollinate it so long as it is in flowering groups C2,C3 or C4.

Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it.
