Especially juicy, slightly tart, and the most aromatic of all apples, with two-toned red and green skin, McIntosh has been praised by countless writers, chefs, and apple lovers for its unique flavor. Here is Frank Browning’s poetic description of the Mac, one of his prize apples in the book Apples: “The McIntosh is a medium sized, bright red to deep purple over green, with a dusty bluish bloom. Crisp but not hard white flesh with berry-like aroma and high juiciness.”
