Novamac has performed very well in our test orchard and has proven to be very easy to grow. A scab resistant variety developed at Kentville, NS, Novamac has a nice winey tang but also lots of sweetness. The flesh is firmer than its name-sake McIntosh, and it ripens earlier. It is also resistant to canker and fireblight. This is a variety that deserves more attention.
