The McIntosh apple is a early and heavy producer. The flesh is white, soft and fine-textured. The flavor is distinctively tangy and aromatic. The McIntosh has a rather tough skin that has mixed red and green coloring. It's a favorite apple for eating out of hand but also is widely used in salads, sauces, pies. It is a mainstay in fresh cider and an all-time favorite for fresh eating and salads. It has a large fruit and is used in juice, pies, and eating raw. Will pollinate with Granny Smith or Golden Delicious. Like all Rabbit Ridge Nursery Trees, our are at least four years old and should produce in a year or two. Needs adequate sun (about six hours a day) and moisture to bear well. EZ Pick Fruits are pruned by us to grow such that the branching starts at about knee level and they are generally finished in a 'vase-shaped' or open style. This allows better fruit access and heavier fruit production. Additionally, you will be able to chose how high you want your fruit tree to be at it's maturity. After harvesting, simply cut back the scaffolding 2 feet below the desired height you want and, when the tree goes dormant, do the cross branch pruning. It is as simple as that!!
