Dwarf McIntosh Apple Trees
Sweet Apple You Can Grow at Home
Macintosh apples are easily recognizable and one of the
most widely enjoyed apple variety. Their flavorful white,
sweet flesh and distinctive, clean fragrance brings back
childhood memories of apples eaten fresh or in apple pies.
Eaten fresh out of hand or in a salad, baked in pies or
other desserts, made into cider or applesauce, the
Macintosh apple is truly an all around winner. With their
large size, crisp mild flavor, and glossy red and green skin,
these apples are a joy to grow. Dwarf Macintosh Apple
Trees bloom in mid April and the fruit may be harvested
Our trees produce heavily because we prune consistently over time, to promote more branching and a stronger structure. They grow best in zones 4-8, are fast growing, and are easy to maintain. They mature to a height of 15-20 feet, and a width of 10-12 feet.
Plant the Dwarf Macintosh in full sun, with well drained soil, and you will be rewarded with delicious high quality fruit. The dwarf Macintosh Apple Tree is very drought tolerant and adaptable to most soil types.
Pollination of apple blossoms occurs primarily from bees and wind. The highest quality and quantity of fruit is harvested when cross pollination occurs. Plant at least two varieties of apple trees together. Two trees of the same apple variety cannot be used in cross pollination. We recommend cross pollinating the Dwarf Macintosh Apple Tree with the Red Delicious, Gala, or any of our other apple varieties.
