The Winesap apple is an old apple variety whose history dates from the 1700s, but further developed in the 1800s'. It is still one of the leading strains being grown in the US.

Winesap apples are good for eating, juice, and baking. It is so juicy that it can make baked goods, such as pies, soggy, unless cornstarch or flour is added. This all-purpose apple has good keeping qualities.

The fruit is good sized. The flesh is very juicy and tart yellow and tinged with red and russet dots, sometimes red veins run through it. It is a firm, rather coarse, moderately crisp apple with a sprightly, medium acid, tart taste. It is disease resistant.

This is a pollen sterile tree and requires a pollinator which has a tendency to produce biennially. It is a slow growing tree which has red blooms in early spring.

It can be kept in cold storage for up to 3 months.

Suggested pollinators are Red or Golden Delicious, Fuji, Gala and Liberty.

Winsap are the BEST Review by Ainitfunny
Bring winesap apples into the house and EVERYONE knows it. The fragrance sweetens the whole house. They make an indelible mark on your memory of apples. Nothing but winesap TASTES like a "real" apple.

It is now that we have GENERATIONS of people who have not tasted a real apple and who settle for the hybrid tasteless, bland, juiceless garbage the grocery and fruit stands hawk because they don't know any better. Much the same with the commercial tomatoes vs the home grown heritage tomatoes.
Best apple ever! Review by Verbena Bay
I've had Winesap apples in my yard for 20 years & they're wonderful. Easy care, grow well & the apples are better than anything in the store. My son-in-law came to visit for the first time & had an apple while we chatted & from then on, in the summer & fall, would drop by out of the blue for a bag of apples to take home. He was hooked. But so are the neighbors so watch those hands coming over the fence :-)
One of the greatest Heirloom Apples! Review by Heirloom Orchardist
The Heirloom Orchardist says: Winesap very popular winter keeper with a tart, rich, wine like flavor. Deep glossy red, overlaid with reddish purple stripes. The flesh is firm and crisp. A great cider apple, a sauce made without first peeling the fruit is a lovely pinkish color. John J. Thomas said in my 1849 issue of The American Fruit Culturist that it s one of the best apples for baking. Fruit Origin: Wine Sap is one of the oldest apples grown in North America (and at one time one of the most popular). It dates back to the colonial era! (
