Zestar! apples are medium to large in size and are round in shape, averaging seven centimetres in diameter. The yellow-green skin is smooth, shiny, and firm with contrasting orange and red striations, giving the fruit a rosy blush over the majority of the skin. There are also many small light tan lenticels or pores covering the surface. The cream-colored to white flesh is juicy and crisp, and there are a few small dark brown seeds encased in the central fibrous core. Zestar! apples have a sweet-tart taste with notes of brown sugar.

Zestar! apples are best suited for both raw and cooked applications such as baking or roasting. They can be consumed fresh out of hand, sliced and mixed in with green salads, or displayed on cheese boards. Zestar! apples brown easily so they can be tossed in lemon juice after slicing to prevent discolouration. They can also be baked in pies, pastries, and served sliced with warm caramel or other dipping sauces. Zestar! apples pair well with roquefort cheese, cheddar cheese, walnuts, cinnamon, and brown sugar. They will keep up to two months when stored in the refrigerator.
