McIntosh Apple ScionwoodThis is a twig for grafting. Fall. Possibly a seedling of Fameuse or perhaps St. Lawrence x Alexander. Dundela, Ontario, 1811. The most important apple in the Northeast. Although not planted in many other locations, it grows to perfection in our cool climate. There are many strains of McIntosh, some striped, some blushed, some solid red. Recent strains have been selected for traits other than flavor, and the variety has gotten a bad reputation. This strain has green ground color overlaid with red stripes and blush. It was planted in 1906 in Mercer, Maine. It has the best “Mac” taste. A delicious aromatic apple. Annual cropper. Large beautifully rounded spreading strong easily managed tree. Very susceptible to scab. Blooms midseason. Z4-5.
