Winston is a very late, good-keeping dessert apple, which tends to be on the small side. The tree is frost-resistant, suitable for the North. It is vigorous, self-fertile, and fairly resistant to scab and canker. It was introduced in 1935 and originally named Winter King for its late ripening and good keeping, but it was renamed after Winston Churchill in 1944-45. It is a cross between Cox’s Orange Pippin and Worcester Pearmain, and it provides the great taste of Cox with the ease of growing of Worcester.
