Flavor: Fruity and crisp

Approximate Ripening: Late September – early October

Uses: Eating, freezing

Trivia: Produced by PRI (Purdue-Rutgers-Illinois) in 1989 and released in 2009, making WineCrisp one of the newer varieties around

Notes: WineCrisp carries both the aroma and flavor of a mildly fruity wine vintage.  WineCrisp has a dull red matte finish, darkening to purple in areas, with some character-lending russets at its top.  Don’t let the lack of a glossy finish turn you away, though; these well-balanced, extremely crisp apples are too good to pass on.  WineCrisp keeps up to nine months in cold storage, so it will hold up well in your fridge.
