Stayman Winesap Apple


Stayman Winesap Apple

Malus spp. Fall-Winter. Seedling of Winesap, discovered by Dr. Joseph Stayman of Leavenworth County, KS, 1866.

Large round fruit is similar in appearance to Winesap but bigger and not as deep red. Thick smooth skin with cherry red stripes over a yellow ground, and conspicuous black-russet dots. Juicy aromatic honey-flavored yellowish-cream flesh is more sweet than tart. Wonderful for both fresh eating and cooking. Popularized in the late 19th and early 20th c. by the Stark Brothers Nurseries catalog and widely planted up and down the eastern half of the U.S. Grows best with hot humid summers and cold winters. (Sound familiar?) Keeps well.

Triploid: not suitable for pollinating other varieties. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
