Winesap Apple Tree - A historic, all purpose apple. (2 years old and 3-4 feet tall.)
What’s great about the Winesap Apple?
- Winesap has been referenced, notably for its outstanding flavor, as far back as 1804. This is a true American variety which is believed to have been discovered during the Colonial days of the United States, and was incredibly popular from that time, up until the 1950’s.
- Winesap is an all-purpose apple because it has traditionally been used for cider, apple butter, apple pies, desserts, and fresh eating. Whatever use there are for apples, Winesap covers it! It’s sprightly tart flavor is quite unique and certainly worth growing in a home orchard.
- Winesap is well-known to be one of the longest lasting apples off the tree and out of cold storage. This was a huge benefit in the years before apples were kept in atmosphere-controlled environments. The trees are heavy producers, meaning you’ll be able to eat Winesap apples long after others have spoiled!
