The fine dining apple

Partake in an elegant culinary experience in your own backyard by picking a fresh Winesap Apple to snack on. It gets its name because it has flavors that are comparable to wine.

The crisp nature and tangy yet sweet flavors of the Winesap make it an excellent choice for snacking. Its crunchy texture and juicy flesh tempt people to eat all of their apples fresh right after harvesting them, even though they are great for baking and juicing.

Winesap Apples have a sour flavor with a rich aftertaste making them the perfect choice for pies, juices, and more. With their prolonged storage life of about six months you can keep them on hand for months to use in fresh, homemade recipes.

You won’t have to rush out to the grocery store for expensive apples grown with harmful chemicals and pesticides when you have a lifetime supply of hard to find Winesap Apples growing at home.

By planting Winesap Apple Trees you’ll have a low maintenance tree with bountiful harvests around mid October year after year as well as a beautiful, flowering ornamental tree.

In the spring your Winesap trees may look like they’re covered in an April snow, but in reality they will be covered in a mass of fragrant white to soft pink blossoms. The gorgeous flowers have a rich floral scent that will fill the warm spring landscape.

Prepare for even more color in the fall when Winesap Apples are ripening because their red skin pops against the green lush canopy for a stunning color contrast. Their colorful performance provides beauty as well as an indicator that it’s time to harvest tons of delicious Winesap Apples.

Winesap Apple Trees are a classic variety that’s hard to find. Order yours today, before they are all gone.

Struggling tree first season
Flowered right away my first spring but immediately saw flowers shrivel up and a few leaves on one beach develop yellow with brown spots
Problem - fungus or insect? This is only 6 months after planting

Potted full root trees are the only way to go. My Bare root trees'll need 2-3 years to regain Health after shipping from a lesser provider.
A beautiful 6' tree with a 2+ inch trunk arrived in great shape. It's been in ground for 3weeks and is shaggy with leaves and 6" of growth.
Be warned! The arborist sat FGT are right about bare root fails. I also ordered some bare root trees from 2 other well advertised sellers and it is a daily struggle to keep them alive - shade cloth, 2a day waterings and brewed humid acid. They've been in ground for two weeks and have not yet gotten over the shock and wilt fromshipping And the roots having been chopped to just 2-3". Lesson learned!
I couldn't be more please and excited with the beautiful Winesap you sent!

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Winesap Apple Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Winesap Apple Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Winesap Apple Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Winesap Apple Tree again after the transplant is complete.

Would the Arkansas Black and Winesap pollinate each other?
Rod L on Apr 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: A winesap should have sterile pollen so your Arkansas will pollinate the winesap but not vise versa. Also I'm fairly sure you will need two pollinators for your winesap.
Does this kind of apple tree, need another apple tree for pollination?
Ellie on Jun 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it would need a pollinator, the Gala, Fuji, Grannysmith and Yellow Delicious would be pollinators.
How does this type of apple compare to the taste of a honey crisp? I really wanted a honey crisp, but I live just outside the recommended growing zone. :-( I am considering the Winesap (never had one) and am also thinking about ordering the 4 in 1 tree! What would you recommend?
Cathy on Jan 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Winesap is closer to the Arkansas Black Apple for making ciders, whereas the Honeycrisp is a little sweeter like a Gala, Pixie Crunch or Jonagold
What type of sprays do I need to put on a winesap apple tree?
fred f on Jan 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The best defense is a healthy tree. Good soil, proper feeding and adequate water are vital to its success. The types of sprays needed would determine what you are spraying for. Neem Oil would be for overwintering organisms such as whiteflies, scale, mealy bugs and mites. Fixed copper would be used for brown rot and to control fire blight. Apple Scab or a Powdery Mildew us a fungicide spray.
