McIntosh, one of North America's truly great varieties, is a red and green apple with bright white flesh and a distinctive and refreshing flavor.

Watch "Health Benefits of Apples" Video.
McIntosh, you may know, is a mildly tart and quite aromatic apple that's great for drying, snacking, most cooking purposes and for applesauce. Sam Kauffman's wife Mattie and their branch of the Kauffman family think that Kauffman's Fruit Farm grown Mcintosh (GMO-free, of course) and Summer Rambo blend is the way to go for sauce, and have thought so for decades!

Speaking of applesauce, the folks that count at your house may enjoy the results of unique recipes like this one (adding raisins could kick great homemade applesauce up yet another notch, couldn't it?). and this one (adding fresh pears could perhaps kick vintage homemade applesauce upward a few notches, right?)

Allow us to reiterate: McIntosh has for many years been the premier apple grown in Ontario and the New England states for more reasons than just for applesauce. They are great for fresh-eating (still one of Norman Kauffman's favorites - he likes apples with a bit more mellow texture), salads and (don't miss this!) APPLE PIES.

Just for interesting: Here are a few historical details supplied by the folks at Reed Valley Orchard. "The first McIntosh orchard was started in 1811 in the heart of Dundas County in Ottawa Canada when United Empire Loyalist John McIntosh bought the Dundela farm and discovered 20 apple trees in the woods. He transplanted them into a garden next to his log shanty, but all the trees, save one, had died by 1830. Forty years later, his son Allan used the seedlings to plant a red apple nursery where the original tree survived, bearing fruit until 1906. Today, every tree growing McIntosh apples descended directly from John McIntosh's orchard." (Emphasis added)

More modern varieties with McIntosh parentage that we grow in our Lancaster County orchards include both Cortland and Empire.

Does it get better than this? You needn't drive to an orchard to buy top quality fresh apples anymore! You can easily - and quickly - buy one (or more!) boxes right here, packed with McIntosh apples that are versatile (see notes above), crunchy, tasty, and good, good for you!

The boxes we use are always fitted with high-density foam cushioning which allows each piece of fruit to occupy its own foam slot for protection and we pack the box with fresh apples of the highest quality. However, we have no control over distance, storage, temperature, or handling during transit, so if the fruit arrives overripe or spoiled, we most likely will not offer a refund, although you're welcome to contact us about it. We offer 2nd Business Day and Next Business Day shipping for those customers who'd like to take an extra step to protect their McIntosh apples during shipping. This item is not available for sale in or to California, Oregon, and Washington.
