Product Description

Delicious Apples, Hassle-Free

If you're looking for the perfect apple tree, it doesn't get any better than the time-tested Winesap Apple Tree. They're exquisitely juicy with a strong, tart, spicy flavor comparable to wine (hence the name). In fact, the Winesap is a favorite for juicing and cider production.

Plus, the Winesap is a money-saver. 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.

Even better? The Winesap is versatile. 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. And though your Winesap will need to be paired with another variety for cross-pollination, the entire process is easy. We suggest any of the following to be planted within 50 feet 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

Planting and care couldn't be simpler. The Winesap Apple Tree is resistant to mildew, cedar apple rust, and cold weather. So, under optimal conditions, you'll receive a great harvest the first year. Because we nurture your tree and won't ship it until it's ready to bear fruit, all you need to do is plant it and prepare to get an abundance of apples as soon as this fall.

Order yours today to have these delicious apples year after year!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: For best results, find a location with well-drained soil and full sun - about 6 hours of sunlight per day. Once you've selected a location, dig a hole that's twice the width of the root ball and just as deep. Then, place your tree, back fill and tamp down the soil, and water to settle the soil. Finally, mulch to retain moisture.

*Tip: Make sure your mulch is not touching the base of the trunk.

2. Watering: Your apple will benefit from a regular watering each week, though you may have to water more during times of drought. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil down to a depth of about 2 or 3 inches - if it's dry here, it's time to water.

3. Pruning: Once your tree has become established and is starting to bear fruit, it will need some periodic, moderate pruning. Only prune the tree during times of dormancy, making sure to remove any vigorous, upright stems and weak, damaged or dead branches.
