This apple started life as Winter King but in 1944 it was renamed Winston.
It is a high quality, late-keeping apple with creamy- white flesh, firm, juicy and a little sharp but mellowing to be sweet and aromatic.
Whilst Winston has many of the flavour characteristics of Cox's Orange Pippin, its horticultural characteristics - fortunately - take after its other parent, Worcester Pearmain. Hence it is resistant to most diseases, easy to grow, and crops reliably.
The identification paintings in the USDA Pomological Watercolor Collection span the years 1886 to 1942.
