Product Details

An improvement on its parent Winesap, this old American variety originates from Kansas in the 1850's. It matures late and traditionally was an apple prized for being able to store through the winter. It's got an aromatic and distinctive pleasing vinous flavour. A late season dessert apple. Fruit is medium in size. Originally prized as an apple which would store through the winter. Raised in 1866 by Dr Stayman in Kansas, it was first promoted in 1895 and has been grown mostly in milder southern climates of the Northern Hemisphere, including Washington State and Virginia; also widely planted in Turkey, Italy and France. The flesh is pale yellow in colour, juicy and aromatic. Good for fresh eating and it is a good keeper.
