A late apple with green yellow skin flushed red. Good resistance to disease. Excellent keeper. Partly self-fertile. Reliable & heavy cropper. Thin the fruits in the summer to have larger fruits. Because of its lateness of ripening and its long storage life it was introduced as Winter King in 1935 but was patriotically renamed Winston in 1944! A good variety to have to extend the harvesting time.
The smaller picture shows Winston flushed deeper red by mid November. It can remain on the tree until well after leaf fall.
