Originated from a Winesap seedling in an orchard in Bentonville, Arkansas in 1870. Arkansas Black is a beautiful dark red to almost black apple and considered to be one of the best storage apples. The fruit ripens late November and is rock-hard when harvested, but softens and improves in flavor in storage. Fruit is medium-sized and slightly conical in shape. Yellow flesh is firm, fine-grained, crisp, moderately juicy, and sprightly subacid in flavor.

My favorite apple both for eating and for pies, of course, is the McIntosh apple. I also like Red Delicious and some other kinds of apples. Granny Smith apples are too tart for me, which is why I don't use them for eating or for pies.

My favorite apple is a local NY apple called Mutsu's Mother. It's a yellow apple, very crisp, and very, very sweet. I also like its offspring, Mutsu, which is green, very crisp and more tart than sweet. Together they are perfect for pies and tarts. Mutsu is the better baker.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

I love Winesaps - hard crunchy and tart!

They're all the perfect occasion for this red-as-red-wine favorite, a beauty of an apple that looks terrific on store displays and at home in wreaths, fruit bowls, and cheese platters.
But gorgeous as Virginia Winesap apples are to look at, they're even better to eat - tart, tangy, juicy, and extra firm.

I like Granny Smith's year round & then NY Empire apples in the fall. Empires are hard, crisp & a bit tart with a thinner redish skin.
