Winesap Apple Tree Pollination
Winesap Apple Trees are not self-fertile. You will need to plant another variety to achieve fruiting. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...
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, backfill 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 Winesap 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.

These 3 trees arrived in great shape and have taken to the new surroundings quite well.
I just ordered and received this tree in early October. I planted it right away so it could establish its roots before winter. Michigan has been a wet autumn so far so I didn't have to be worried about watering it. It seems to be doing fine; I'll know more about how its doing this coming spring.
Fantastic little tree, I got it in the ground with some mulch and have been watering regularly to keep it happy since I planted early. Hoping to get it established before the weather drops in January so that it'll do ok through the cold months.
We love the tree. It arrived in perfect condition and seems to be very happy planted. Thanks.
This order was fumbled but the tree was in great shape when it finally arrived
