The Macoun apple tree (sometimes pronounced "McCowan") was developed at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva, by R. Wellington. Macoun apple tree was named after Canadian fruit grower W.T. Macoun, when first introduced in 1923. Macoun apples are a McIntosh-style apple, widely grown in New England and with arguably the best flavor of its siblings. Macoun apples are dark purplish-red blush over green background in cooler summer climates. Flesh is white, richly flavored, aromatic with excellent fresh eating quality. Macoun is a sweet refreshing apple with a pronounced flower-like vinous flavor. The flesh has a soft crisp texture and plenty of juice. The Macoun apple is at its best when picked and eaten straight from the tree. One of the better mid season apples. Drops quite a few apples before they are fully ripe.
