Macoun Apples
Macoun apples are my favorite of all the apples we have planted. The sweet, crunchy taste of fall makes sauces and desserts wonderful and they store well for about four to six weeks, if done right.

I planted this apple tree last year and saw the first blossoms this spring. The tree is thriving. Looking forward to when it bears fruit.

too early to fully rate
So far the tree has done very well but since we are in year 3 no fruit has been produced yet. Too early to see how production will go.

Nice growth
I purchased this tree one year ago and am thrilled that it survived the winter and had tons of growth last summer. The tree budded out and has shown it wasn't bothered at all by my zone 4 winter. The size of the tree when it was shipped was bigger than I expected and it was packed very well.
