Flavor for cider

I remember this apple from my childhood and I always loved it. One local orchard grew it but went out of business years ago. I've searched for years and finally found it! Now I can grow my own! Thank you Stark Bros for keeping these wonderful old apples alive. I was too late this year to order the Pound Sweets/Yankee Sweets, but I put my name on the list for next year. My plan is to grow as many of the old apples as I can and share them so people know what they're missing.

My husband's father grew these, but lost them when a tornado came through. Since that day, my husband has talked about no other apple but "Winesaps," as he called them and can't find an apple that compares. We're glad we found this type again!

First year of growth is promising and healthy.
My tree is now one year old and it is growing nicely. The Sops of Wine is growing at an average rate compared to the other varieties that I planted at the same time. It arrives and looks like a stick, and one year later it actually resembles a small healthy tree. Customer service was also very helpful with resolving mistakes made in shipment.
