The most popular long keeping winter apple. Medium size apple good for cooking and fresh eating. Fruit color is light green with pinkish-red stripes. This crisp and juicy apple has sweet-tart taste. Sterile pollen - not a pollinator. Ripens early to mid October.
A lovely combination of tart and sweet, the Winesap apple has been popular since the days of the pioneers. They are not only tasty but also long-lived after being harvested, lasting 6 months or more in the refrigerator. The rich, wine-like flavor works well for applesauce, pies and cider, and they are delicious when eaten fresh.
When planting these trees, be sure to include other apple varieties such as red or yellow delicious, Jonathan or early harvest to ensure pollination.
