Additional Information:

Unique Features: The McIntosh apple originated as a chance seedling (unknown heritage) discovered in 1811.  Commercial production started in 1870 and continues.  It is the National Apple of Canada and in the Top 15 for North America.  The McIntosh is a mid-season bloomer that ripens in late September. It is a general purpose apple good for fresh eating, cooking and cider.  The size is a medium to large with mostly red (crimson) skin and more green on the shaded side.  Fresh from the tree the crisp, very juicy white flesh has tart over sweet flavor that mellows to a sweeter pear like flavor.  It bakes well and is great for pies. The McIntosh apple tree exhibits good resistance to Fire blight.  It has also contributed its genes to over 70 other successful apple tree clones.  The Red or Yellow delicious apple tree is a good pollinator for the McIntosh and the Honeycrisp.
