Why plant RubyMac® McIntosh Apple Bare Root?
No, we’re not talking about the computer, although the Apple Macintosh was in fact named after the McIntosh apple. This glossy red apple has a juicy, bright white flesh that offers up the perfect balance of sweetness and tartness. It also has grape-like undertones, which you may not have realized if you’ve only ever had supermarket apples. You’ll be pleased to discover how much more flavorful fresh-picked, tree-ripened McIntosh apples are over those you buy at the store. This variety is ideal for fresh, healthy snacking, and it also cooks up into a delicious applesauce, pie, strudel, cobbler, or crumble as well.

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
