A Winesap Apple ready to be picked at McDougal Orchards

About the Winesap apple

The earliest mention of the Winesap apple was documented in 1917 where it was noted as a popular apple for use in cider production in the state of New Jersey. It is rumored to originally have come over from Europe as a seed but the exact heritage of this apple is currently unknown. In the past it was mainly used as a cider apple which, over time, discouraged growers from planting it since juice apples fetch a lower price at the market when compared to popular fresh eating varieties. However, with the recent resurgence of interest in heirloom varieties and cider blends, Winesaps have been popping up in an increasing number of orchards.
