Marshall McIntosh

Sweet Tart

Marshall McIntosh, commonly called Marshall Mac, is an early season, medium, round apple with predominantly red skin and green highlights. It bears a strong resemblance to its McIntosh parent for its soft-firm flesh, juiciness, aroma, and sweet-tart flavor, but it has more red color, and it ripens earlier than McIntosh.
