Visitor Tips and News About World's Largest Apple
My first destination on Roadside America. Anti-climatic, but brought me into Winchester which was really cool and the point of taking a road trip. Worth the detour if you are looking to eat as well.[Christy Jindra, 11/20/2013]
Okay, so once upon a time this might have been Huge, but it's not worth the detour off I-81 by itself. However, the town of Winchester IS. It's in a nice historical neighborhood near a pedestrian mall (which I haven't visited yet). White House apple plant is nearby.[Karen, 08/02/2010]
The Apple is from a time when concrete and a popular postcard could hold onto a civic claim. Time for Winchester's four-story tall Apple instead of that pedestrian mall?
The exact location is the intersection of west Piccadilly street and north Braddock street.[Luke, 04/25/2010]
I've lived in Winchester most of my life, and perhaps I can shed some light on the apple. Because apples are a major cash crop of Virginia, we celebrate "Apple Blossom" on the first full weekend of May. That apple was a float in the very first Apple Blossom parade and has been there ever since.[Hannah, 02/13/2007]
