Stayman Winesap, an heirloom variety discovered in 1866 by Dr. J. Stayman of Leavenworth, Kansas, is deep crimson in color with a rather tough skin, and it has a firm, juicy, light yellow flesh with a wine-like sweet-tart flavor. It is an all-purpose apple that stores well, and it is favored for cider-making. Ripening dates range from late September to early November.
