Fix Bros. Fruit Farm
This tree is the oldest McIntosh apple tree on Fix Farm. We figure it is around 100 years old – one of the first ones planted when the farm was established in 1899.
The variety of this apple is very delicious. It is the original strain of McIntosh, although not as pretty as the newer strains, the flavor is superior.
So, in order to continue with this variety, Bob cut some wood from the tree and sent it to the Nursery that we use to have 150 trees made of this variety. We will call it – the Fix McIntosh.
They were planted in our PYO Apple orchard and should produce fruit in a couple of years. We hope you will enjoy this variety as much as we do.
The old tree is on standard root, many years before dwarfing roots were developed. You can see how close we can plant these trees now.

We do not accept Credit Cards
In the past when we planted a new orchard, we had to physically go out with tape measures and sticks to mark out the rows. Now with GPS technology that we installed in the tractor, you program the row spacing to what you want and it will automatically line up the tractor, so that it drives by itself. Literally, no hands on the steering wheel. The lines are very straight and this will cut down on man hours and time.
