Facts About Winesap Apples
If you were in the U.S. South during the 19th century and you were offered an apple to eat, there’s a pretty decent chance it was a Winesap. The earliest mention of the Winesap apple was documented in 1917 where it was noted as a popular apple for use in cider production in the state of New Jersey. It is rumored to originally have come over from Europe as a seed but the exact heritage of the Winesap apple is currently unknown.
Winesap apples are highly aromatic with a balanced sweet-tart taste and get their name due to their distinctive spicy wine like flavor. Exceptionally juicy, they are perfect for cider, sauces, juice and preserves. A member of the rose family (Rosaceae), the Winesap apple is parent to a variety of different strains including the Arkansas Black and Stayman Winesap. Unlike most apple trees the flower blossoms on the Winesap tree are pink rather than white.
