This customer was astonished...
A couple of years ago, a woman called me from somewhere in Northeastern United States. She had bought some apples from us during a vacation in Ontario and raved about them being most amazing apple she had ever tasted - she just had to call us to find out what unique variety it was.
Based on her description of the apple and the time of her visit, I was able to tell her that she had bought a bag of our McIntosh apples. She was absolutely astonished and it took some convincing to help her realize that it was indeed the good old 'Mac' that had blown her away!
Take a bite from Apple Inc's slogan and "think differently" about this true Ontario apple!
This is not an isolated story. While many of our existing customers love the Macs, just as many new ones come into our store saying 'I hate Macs'. We just say 'Here try one’ -- the fact is they have never tasted this fabulous apple when it’s fresh-picked. Once they do, many wonder out loud why the ones they buy in the grocery stores are so disappointing, even when they are sold as ‘new crop’ apples in the fall.
Learn why the McIntosh apple deserves our love and respect! It traces its roots to a tree found by John McIntosh growing wild in 1811 on his farm in the eastern Ontario hamlet of Dundela, about 70 km southeast of Ottawa. To this day Canada is known around the world for this great variety of apple.
