Discovered by Dr. J. Stayman in Kansas during the late 1880s, The Stayman Winesap Apple is lovely combination of tart and sweet. The rich, wine-like flavor works well for applesauce, pies, and cider, and they are delicious eaten fresh. When planting these trees, be sure to include other apple varieties such as red or yellow delicious, Jonathan, or early harvest to ensure pollination. Cannot be used to pollinate other apple trees, as it is a triploid. During the 1800s, Winesap apples were beloved because of their long shelf life. The Stayman Winesap apple grows well in acidic, loamy, moist, rich, sandy, silty loam and well-drained soil.
