The McIntosh apple is my favorite, but the heritage variety doesn't grow well in my region. I'm hoping that the SnappyMac will do well since it's been bred to be cold hardy and disease-resistant.

Macs are terrific apples, tried and true, ROOTS galore, arrived in less than 5 days, just ready to break dormancy..

I chose the Stark SnappyMac to begin apple growing in my retirement because Macs bring back wonderful childhood memories and I have always simply loved eating them.

I love Macintosh apples, can't grow them in Florida, hope this is a good substitute.

You can't beat the current deal that Stark is offering on this apple. Macintosh are my favorite commercially-grown variety and I hope that this graft produces a similar taste from my homestead.

Will my Northern Spy apple tree pollinate a SnappyMac apple tree?
Geo P on Jun 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Northern Spy is one of the latest-blooming apple trees while McIntosh like SnappyMac tends to be early blooming. These two varieties alone may not have overlapping bloom times, so you may want a third tree in the mix, like Golden Delicious, or opt for a pair of trees that are more likely to cross-pollinate reliably.
is this an acceptable pollinator for cortland apples?
Alex G on Apr 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It would be an excellent pollinator. SnappyMac?? and Cortland are both mid-season bloomers.

Snappy Mac Apple trees
Snappy Macs seem to be a very good choice at this point in time. They seem to be more resistant to Fire Blight in comparison to some 'disease resistant' trees. Snappy Macs definitely have an advantage in regards to their growth/ production canopy in which they were designed for. Very hardy tree and I anticipate a great harvest this year.

SnappyMac Apple
Came to me in excellent shape with good root system. Planted it as soon as received it, After the spring rains got rapid growth and came fall it had grown 6" to 8". Just checked on them this spring and are starting off wonderfully. Highly recommend Starks to anybody.

Since my trees are only a year old, all I can say is that they are leafed out this spring and look good.

So far the Snappy Macs have survived their first winter on the Colorado front range which is above 8,000 ft. They probably won't produce for 4 more years as nothing really thrives at this altitude. Anything that survives the first winter and looks good come spring gets a definite "thumbs up" for hardiness. Giving a rating of 4 as I can not comment on taste or abundance of apples produced.
