McIntosh apples are famous for their light, tangy flavor and distinctive red skin.
These apples ripen early in the season, and these Macintosh trees produce heavily!
Enjoy your Macintosh apples fresh, or use them for baking and cooking in pies and sauces, even for apple cider! You’ll love how quickly this tree will grow and begin producing delicious Macintosh apples!
Grow your fruit organically. No longer will you worry about spraying your trees with chemicals and pesticides. Just plant your tree and pick your fruit right off the branches!
Most nurseries sell tall, skinny stems with no branches, referred to as “whips”. These take years to produce and even in maturity will no produce an impressive harvest.
Our Macintosh apples are more mature trees that have been trained to produce a branching structure. This requires an extra year of work for us, but the results you experienced will be dramatic! As a matter of fact, some of them are already producing apples in the nursery!
Begin harvesting your Macintosh apples as soon as the first season under ideal conditions!

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your McIntosh Apple Tree.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your McIntosh Apple Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your McIntosh Apple Tree again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
