Macoun
Macoun Apple Fall. NY 547 (McIntosh x Jersey Black) NY Stn, 1923.

This is an apple with a near cult following, even though practically no one seems to know how to pronounce the name. (It rhymes with town, not tune!)

Especially good choice for those who like McIntosh but live south of Maine where Macs might not reach their prime. Medium-sized ribbed lobed truncate fruit, almost entirely covered with a dark purplish-red blush. The very juicy aromatic white flesh is crisp with a rich sweet flavor. Excellent for fresh eating.

Large vigorous upright spreading tree. Moderately productive. Although susceptible to scab, the fruit appears to be less affected than McIntosh. Macoun also shows some natural resistance to insect damage. Blooms mid-late season. Z4-6. Maine Grown. (3-6' trees)

Additional Information

Apples

All apple trees require a second variety for pollination, but any apple or crabapple blooming at the same time, within a quarter mile, will probably do.

Planting distance depends on the rootstock:
Plant standard trees (A) 25-30' apart.
Plant Bud 118 (B) rootstocks 20-25' apart.
Plant M111 (C) rootstocks 15-20' apart.
Plant Bud 9 (D) rootstocks 5-10' apart.

Each apple variety has a climate range where it will thrive and produce its best fruit. At the end of each apple description we list a range of zones. For example, Z3-4 signifies that this apple will reach perfection in Zones 3 and 4 and that we don’t recommend it farther south even though it would be plenty hardy. Z4-6 means that this apple will reach perfection in Zones 4, 5 or 6. Although we have received reports from southern areas that some of our rarest Maine apples are thriving, we suggest you use this guide to select apples most appropriate to your area.

Varieties bearing annually are noted; others normally bear every other year. With diligent annual pruning and thinning, most apples will produce an annual crop, one heavy, the next light.
