The Instacart guide to Winesap apples
About Winesap apples
The Winesap apple is thought to have originated in New Jersey some years before 1800. It started being grown for commercial purposes in the 1900s. This variety was widely grown in the southern states of the U.S., especially Virginia. Winesap apples have progenies that include Blacktwig, Arkansas Black, and Stayman Winesap apples.
During the 20th century, the production of Winesap apples declined since most farmers preferred growing fresh-eating apple varieties. There was also increased popularity in controlled atmosphere storage. This allowed people to grow various apple varieties that could be produced, stored, and sold within the year. Recently, there has been a growing interest in heirloom apple varieties, Winesap being one of them. Although not in large numbers, they are now grown in Oregon, Georgia, and Washington.
Winesap apples are medium-sized, with thick dark-red skin. Their skin is firm, and their creamy yellow flesh is crisp and juicy. Their taste is a balance of sweet and tart, with high fragrance notes. Their name results from their spicy fine wine-like flavor. A unique aspect of Winesap apples is that this variety has pink flower blossoms, unlike most apple trees, whose flowers are white. The harvest time for Winesap apples is between September and November.
