It was written:

Lapins is listed in Jung's catalog as hardy U.S. zones 5 - 7, a natural
semi-dwarf, self-fertile. I have two that came thru there first winter in
very good shape.

My 4 year old Lapins is over 20 feet tall...

By the by they are not hardy in zone 4 - I am in 4b and that is the breaking might try Stark is a bit hardier though not truly

As an FYI Northsatr is a morello type, hardy in zone 4 and 6-8 ft...they hang
when ripe just fine, and when dead ripe, are sort of sweet, earlier than that
they are tart.

Our Lapins never fruited here in zone 5 after about five years on Giesela
due I believe to fruit bud mortality during even mild winters. Not to say
it wouldn't occassionally friuit, the tree was young and has been destroyed
by a vandal so I can't say for sure.
The experiment station in Door Cnty, WI recommends Emperor Francis,
Kristen, , and Gold. I also have grown Yellow Glass with good fruiting in
zone 4b. I suspect they would approve of the new cultivars: White Gold and
that other one, what was it called, Black Gold?
