Looked like a good complement to the Golden Delicious I ordered, plus disease resistant and stores a long time.

This is a locally hybridized apple and a great storing apple. It should do well in my region.

Our favorite!
We have planted Winecrisps, Honeycrisp, Golden, and Pink Lady apple trees. The Winecrisp just started producing last year and it is our favorite! The flavor is deliciously different and the texture really is crisp. We highly recommend this tree.

Winecrisp as ordered
I ordered a semi dwarf WineCrisp apple tree which was delivered as a healthy looking 4 foot whip in Fall 2015. What attracted me to this variety was the disease resistance, multiple suggested uses for the fruit, long-term storage and an annual crop. As every past product (five fruit trees and one blueberry bush) that I've ordered from Stark Bros. has been an outstanding grower, I am expecting the same from my WineCrisp apple tree!
