John McIntosh, a settler in Dundela, Ontario, planted several seedlings around 1811. One produced these famous apples. The flesh is soft and slightly tart with high vitamin C content. Excellent for applesauce. Some resistance to fire blight. To the best of our knowledge, this is the original strain.
