I really like the Stayman Winesap, it has a real appley flavor. Also up there is the old fashioned "Winter banana" Its a floral high sweetness flavor kinda like a pawpaw. Here in th east where Mr Chapman was spreading his seed, we have many varietals of apple that have been grown and developed since they were first brought over.
Winter bananas are at their best around ST Valentines Day and then they start to soften. BUT, they are great for tarts with berries and like a flan base.
MMMMMMMMMMMM, finest kind.
