Mine too! But only the true winesaps -- the tart ones.

Sadly, I only seem to find the Stayman and the Stayman Winesaps in my area and it's driving me nuts. The old winesaps used to be so easy to find. :-(

I still grow them for our farm market in South Central PA. I ship anywhere in the USA if your interested.

These are truly great apples. There are much better varieties for eating, but have found them excellent for pies, pink sauce (leave the skins on!) and add a great deal of flavor in cider. And, they seem to last well into spring when left in the unheated garage or fridge. I have planted two Winesap trees in my orchard, and I don't often plant two of anything. The orchard I used to get them from locally had them stolen right off the trees this last year, which really stinks!
