Nice looking apples. How is the taste? Tony F.

If you eat them like they are right now, they just taste like an unripe Winesap. But if you let them hang on the tree 5 more weeks they look like this photo and have a deep, dark, rich, winey-mahogany taste that matches the color. It is a fine balance however to get them when they're fully ripe (they're rock-hard before this) and over-ripe and mealy, as they will hang on the tree too long.
