Why plant Macoun Apple Bare Root?

For generations of New Englanders, October has meant Macoun apple season and a trip to the local you-pick orchard to load up on this special seasonal treat. The Macoun apple—which rhymes with “down,” as in, “I can’t put this Macoun down!”—makes other varieties pale by comparison. A perfectly ripe Macoun is deep purple-red with a crisp, juicy, bright white flesh that delivers the perfect blend of sweet and tart flavors. True apple lovers may also pick up subtle notes of berry, grape, and spice. This apple is not a good keeper, so you really must eat it fresh. We ask you: does it get any fresher than right off your own tree?

The Macoun Apple Tree was born and bred in Geneva, New York at the State Agricultural Experiment Station back in 1909. Researchers crossed the beloved McIntosh Apple, which gave much of its flavor to Macoun, with an heirloom variety called Jersey Black, which lent its rich color. The new Apple was named after a Canadian fruit grower, William Tyrell Macoun, and it was introduced in 1923. Because it performs especially well in New England and it doesn’t ship or store particularly well, it is known primarily as a regional Apple. Macoun was once believed to be a parent of the uber-popular Honeycrisp, but a paternity test later revealed that Macoun was not the father after all.

How to use Macoun Apple Bare Root in the landscape?

The Macoun is a gourmet dessert apple that is most often eaten fresh. It pairs beautifully with cheese and wine and is also satisfying all by itself. However, you can cook with Macoun as well and turn a bumper crop into tasty cider, sauce, or pie.

How To Water

Water deeply, and regularly during its first few years in the ground. Irrigate weekly, and especially during prolonged dry spells or extreme heat after it’s established. It is essential to water your apple tree 2-3 times a week, applying the water slowly to go deeper to the root system.
