This American heirloom variety was discovered as a chance seedling in New Jersey and was first mentioned in literature in 1804. There is also an illustration in the US Department of Agriculture Pomological Watercolor collection dated from 1808. 

The apple is small-medium in size and while initially light green in color, it blushes to a dark red when ripe. Its flesh is very yellow and sweet. It has natural, moderate disease resistance and was very popular in orchards in the 1800s. Therefore, the Winesap is actually a parent to many modern apples. Trees are low maintenance and easy to grow and are excellent pollinators for early trees.
