A sport of Red Stayman 201, this strain was discovered in the orchards of Alfred Snapp of Winchester, Virginia. We are confident that Snapp™ Stayman is the most highly colored strain of Stayman available. Productivity and flesh quality are identical to Red Stayman 201. Tree vigor is more spur type than standard Stayman, and tree spacing should be adjusted accordingly.
