Hello! I am trying to determine what variety of apple tree we have in our backyard. After some research and talking with neighbors, I am confident that it's either Zestar or State Fair. Can you tell me how to tell the difference between these two varieties of apples? Thank you!

The following links should help you with identification. State Fair does not store very well so that might help with the ID:
