About the McIntosh Apple :

Fruit beautiful deep red color, size variable. Flesh white, firm, tender, very juicy, flavor characteristically aromatic, perfumed, subacid. 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.

A good pollinator: Braeburn
