McIntosh – Ontario, Canada 1798

Most folks know this apple as the fruit with melting white flesh — firm, tender, juicy, characteristically tart, spicy, aromatic. Fruit beautiful deep red color, size variable. One of the best flavored apples, makes aromatic cider. Precocious, that is, bears fruit when young. Not a good keeper when grown in warmer climates. Subject to early fruit drop, but displays good resistance to cedar apple rust and fireblight.
