The apple varieties listed below are orchard favorites and highly recommended for fresh eating. Many of these varieties also make fantastic cider due to their high sugar content and ample acidity. I've highlighted a few standouts in the "Also Cider!" section.

I offer one hint as you go about your selection: Hone in on the 'ugly' apples. How did such unremarkable fruits find hospitable homes for centuries without fail? Flavor, my friend, flavor.

Product Details

Winesap x Unknown, Dr. J Stayman, Kansas, 1866

In Apples for the 21st Century, Warren Manhart details how an orchard friend referred to Staymans as his "money trees," in honor of their ability to produce an annual crop of large, delicious apples. That was enough reason for me to graft a couple, and years later I appreciate being able to enjoy sweet, spunky Staymans every fall.

Though my heart belongs to bite-size apples, I appreciate the jumbos like Stayman Winesap that are seemingly part Mortgage Lifter tomato and require both hands to grasp. I also appreciate Stayman's tangy-sweet taste and crunchy, juicy texture.

Stayman Winesap trees are incredibly vigorous and scab-resistant. As a triploid, they will not pollinate other varieties.
