Red McIntosh is one of the all-time favorites for some people. Red McIntosh is an early season apple with very aromatic, flavorful, white, juicy flesh. It is somewhat firm, but only will keep for shorter periods during the fall and early winter. Skin is a distinctive red color. A pollinator is needed for best fruit production.
