Steve Jobs has nothing on this variety of apple. McIntosh’s are an early season apple that will become redder as they ripen on the tree. This will also affect the flavor of the apple. When you pick a McIntosh early in the season they tend to be more on the tart side, whereas if you pick them later, they will be sweeter. According to Specialty Produce, the apple is easy to break down, making it a great addition to sweet and savory preparations, such as pizza, tarts, stuffing, soups, and desserts.
