Delicious Apples from a Gorgeous Tree
Crisp, Juicy Apples Are Great For Snacking, Juicing and Cooking
If you're looking for the perfect apple tree, it doesn't get any better than the time-tested Winesap.
Introduced as far back as the 1800's, this tree is packed with great qualities. The apples you'll pick each year from your tree are delicious right off the vine. With a firm skin and crisp flesh, you'll find they're an excellent choice for baking! They're exquisitely juicy with a strong, tart, spicy flavor '– comparable to wine (hence its name.) The Winesap is a favorite for juicing and cider production.
Stores Well = 3 Months or More
Don't you just hate it when all your fruit comes in at once and you're in a mad dash to consume it before it goes bad? You won't have that problem with this tree! Your large harvest will ripen in mid-October and the fruit does perfectly fine on the vine through November. The best part: your apples keep well for 3 months when refrigerated.
You'll be serving warm apple cider through the holiday season, and can make the best apple pies your friends and family have ever tasted - all the way through February.
Rare, Beautiful Appearance
This tree doesn't just produce juicy delicious apples! It's quite an attractive tree as well. When it flowers each year with pink blooms, you're bound to receive compliments on its beauty. (Other apple trees have white flowers, so the Winesap is definitely unique!)
The dark red, medium sized apples set among dark green foliage adds a touch of class to any yard, but you're not restricted to landscape growth. You can pot your Winesap in a container to enjoy just about anywhere. We recommend your patio, or near a window where you can relish the view and sweet aroma.
Your Winesap will need to be paired with another variety for cross-pollination. We suggest any of the following to be planted within 50' of your Winesap for successful fruit bearing:
• Fuji Apple Tree (Low-Chill)
• Gala Apple Tree
• Granny Smith Apple Tree
• McIntosh Apple Tree
• Yellow Delicious Apple Tree
