Cider Maker’s DescriptionIn the early 19th Century, John McIntosh noticed a young apple tree growing on his property in Ontario, near the U.S. border. Enthralled by his discovery, he sold seeds to his neighbors hoping to popularize this new found apple. It took him years to realize that apples do not grow true to seed and varietal propogation could only be achieved through grafting. Today the McIntosh is commonly grown in Canada, New England, New York, and Michigan. This aromatic apple with a distinct white flesh and a vinous flavor is coveted for fresh eating and cider production.
