Malus 'Mcintosh' Apple Tree
Malus x domestica
The World's Favorite Apple! A mildly tart but well-balanced flavor.
Round, red, mildly tart fruit has a soft texture when cooked. Gives apple sauce and cider a spicy kick; bakes up juicy and tender. Ripens in mid-Sept.
When planting these trees, be sure to include other apple varieties such as red delicious, yellow delicious or early harvest to ensure pollination. Like most apple trees, require a pollinator to be fruitful. That means there needs to be another apple tree of a different variety — ideally growing within 50 feet — for adequate cross-pollination.
