These Macintosh apples have white, tender flesh. Juicy and aromatic, this is one of the most popular varieties in New England and Canada.
These apples are best stored in a paper bag in the refrigerator.
Bill and Andrea at Champlain Orchards are committed to ecological practices and are Eco-Apple certified. Due to the challenges of our Northeast climate, organic certification of apples is incredibly difficult. Their apples are never sprayed; only in the flowering stage are the trees treated using Integrated Pest Management to cut down on the risk of scab. No chemical pesticides are used on the orchards.
This is our default, year-round apple. We love these apples, although they are definitely better quality in season during the fall.
These apples are terrific. They were fantastic in the fall; now it is March and they remain crisp & delicious. The storage process is a marvel. We enjoy them for eating and they really do make a wonderful sauce.
