Wildlife Value

Apples are eaten by a variety of birds and mammals. The leaves and branches are browsed. The trees can be destroyed by rodents and rabbits girdling the stem or trunk. It produces nectar and/or pollen, thus providing nutrition for bees in early to late spring.


During the 1800s, winesap apples were beloved because of their long shelf life. This fruit kept long into the winter, providing something delicious and healthful to eat during the snowy months.

In 1886, Dr. J. Stayman of Leavenworth, Kansas, noticed a seedling of a winesap apple that was apparently slightly different than the rest. It eventually produced apples that he deemed superior to other winesaps. The apple growing community agreed, and the cultivar was given his name.
