About this McIntosh Apple tree
SHELLEY, ID, United States
Vigorous growing tree, wants to grow straight up but I keep it in check through pruning and using spacers. I'm trying to train it to grow wide and low, no more than 8 feet so I can prune/thin/harvest without a ladder. I've determined that some apples can be eaten when they are almost ripe and are still pretty tasty, not these. It seems like the last few weeks makes a world of difference for Macs in both taste and texture and once they are completely ripe the flavor is hard to beat.
