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!
