I love Winesap apples. They have a crisp tart/sweet flavor that is delicious. I have two other Winesap trees ( still waiting for them to bloom ~ New England had a massive gypsy moth caterpillar plague a few years ago and it really damaged my trees ). We ordered several other varieties of apple trees, but this variety is one of my favorites.

It is in the pollination zone compatible with Macoun and makes a great pie.

Stayman
Tasty apples , trees seem to struggle with powdery mildew a bit. Fruit cracking at the crown too. Fairly precocious high sugar apple that should make fine cider when we get a big enough crop. The PM hasn't been horrible but it is pretty much the only tree in the orchard that shows any sign of the disease so I worry about it.

Great tree
The tree arrived quickly and grew nicely right away. 14 months later it has leafed out significantly and sent new branches out. No blooms or apples yet but the tree is still young so I'm not worried about that. Stayman apples are the BEST.
