New England Apple of the Week

Discovered 1801 Dundas County, Ontario, Canada
Parentage Fameuse x Detroit Red
Harvest Mideason

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.”

Ben Davis is a handsome red apple with green and deep red striping and coarse, pale yellow-to-white flesh. It is a large, moderately juicy and crisp fresh-eating or baking apple, its flavor rather mellow. Ben Davis is harvested in mid-October and not only holds up very well in storage, but its flavor improves as well.
