Similar to Sayman's winesap, this late ripening modest sized red apple dates from mid 1800's in Kansas. Skin can be dark, more often mid-red and occasionally a wandering russet. Flesh crunchy and aromatic and distinctive pleasing vinous flavour (VINOUS: meaning it shares in a certain flavour complexity and intrigue like wine has. Does not mean it tastes like an old bottle of wine!)
Important note on size. All my stepovers didnt make sufficient growth, and as such are sold as "small". In the paddock most got up to mid thigh (when in leaf!) and should do just fine. They've been discounted accordingly.
As we grow it on other rootstocks, be sure that you want it as a Step-over.
