One of the world's most famous apples originating around 1800 in Ontario, Canada. It's a bright red apple, roundish shaped that fits gently into the hand, with a bit of stripe or fleck in the colouring. It has sweet scented white flesh, occasionally with pink streaks. It at least partially self fertile and a good provider of pollen. Probably America's most famous apple, but never seems to have taken off commercially in Australia. A McIntosh at its peak straight from the tree is a memorable culinary experience. It's the parent of Spartan, Lady in the Snow and Goal Farm 4.
Important note on size. All my stepovers didnt make sufficient growth, and as such are sold as "small". In the paddock most got up to mid thigh (when in leaf!) and should do just fine. They've been discounted accordingly.
As we grow it on other rootstocks, be sure that you want it as a Step-over.
