Pollination Info

McIntosh Apple Tree Pollination

McIntosh Apple Trees are not self-fertile. You will need to plant another variety to achieve fruiting. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Full sun and well-drained soil help your McIntosh Apple thrive, so select an area with both (6 hours of sunlight per day). Now that you have found your ideal planting location for the McIntosh Apple, there are some basic steps for planting the tree. Place your tree, tamp down the soil as you fill the hole to prevent air pockets, and water to settle. Finally, mulch to preserve moisture.

*Tip: Make sure your mulch is not touching the base of the trunk.

2. Watering: Your McIntosh Apple will benefit from a regular watering each week. You may need to water more often in times of extreme heat or drought. The soil surrounding your tree should be moist, but never saturated. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil about 2 or 3 inches down - if it's dry here, it's time to water.

3. Pruning: Once your tree has become established and is starting to bear fruit, it will need some periodic, moderate pruning. Only prune the tree during times of dormancy, making sure to remove any vigorous, upright stems. Weak, damaged or dead branches should also be removed.
