Winesap

Winesaps are an heirloom variety of apple, first discovered in 1817.  People love these apples cut into salads and for eating due to their sweet juicy flavor. They are thought to be “red as wine” and their yellow colored flesh makes them an excellent cider apple. Their official name is the Stayman Winesap after the man who popularized this ancient variety.
