The McIntosh apple is known for making especially good applesauce. This is a large, bright red apple with thin, smooth skin. The crisp, juicy fine white flesh with pink streaks is an old-time favorite in the north. The trees are extremely hardy and very productive. The McIntosh pollinates well with Gala or Red Delicious, and ripens in September, requiring 900 chill hours and being semi-self fertile.
Grows in zones: 3 - 7.
