DESCRIPTION

Marshall McIntosh, commonly called Marshall Mac, is an early season, medium, round apple with predominantly red skin and green highlights. It bears a strong resemblance to its McIntosh parent for its soft-firm flesh, juiciness, aroma, and sweet-tart flavor, but it has more red color, and it ripens earlier than McIntosh.

HISTORY

Marshall Mac was originally propagated by Roaring Brook Nurseries of Wales, Maine, in 1967. It was later discovered at Marshall Farms in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. McIntosh is its only known parent.
