How to Use Macoun Apple In The LandscapePeople say the taste of the Macoun is better than any other apple. Why not grow your own?
The Macoun Apple tree itself grows upright and blooms mid-late season. It’s a great pollinator partner, and pollinates early-blooming Apple trees, as well as ones blooming mid-season and late in the season!
Smaller-sized tree, Macoun make perfect dual-purpose edible landscaping trees, beautiful front garden specimen plants as they are patio shade and accent trees!
The blooms alone make these a tree you’d want to highlight this tree as a focal point. Lovely rows for property definition and privacy.
Small enough for urban yards and small orchards, as well as tucking into an existing orchard for an extension of the harvest season.
#ProPlantTips For CareFruit trees thrive in the full sun, you’ll get the largest crops and blooms in 8 plus hours of sunlight.
Hardy in growing zones 4-7, these are cold-tolerant trees! Developing the best flavor after some cool autumn nights, Macoun prefers colder growing zones.
A cross between McIntosh and Jersey Black apples they are heavy producers that should be thinned early in the season. You’ll want the largest, highest quality apples to ripen for you. Thinning also helps your tree produce a consistent crop each year.
Though the tree is adaptable and can thrive in many soil types, your planting site will need to have good air circulation, well-drained soil and full sunlight.
Keep to a regular watering schedule and do not allow it to dry out during drought. Protect your investment with consistent, average moisture and a layer of mulch to insulate the roots and retain moisture.
Since the Macoun Apple is a late harvest fruit, it extends your harvest when planted with early ripening Apple selections such as Honeycrisp, mid-season McIntosh, and end-season Fuji, ensuring you’ll have nearly 5 months of fresh Apples to sell at your roadside stand or to just enjoy on your own in your garden.

Macoun Apple Tree Frequently Asked QuestionsWhen to Plant Macoun Apple TreesPlanting Bareroot trees as soon as you can dig a hole in spring and until hot weather, the earlier the better. Plant container Apple trees throughout the growing season with complete success – that is the benefit of container plants – to extend the planting season. Your County Agricultural Extension Office is a great resource for first and last frost dates in your area.
How to Plant Macoun Apple TreesDig a large hole only as deep as needed to accommodate the bareroot or container root ball, and twice as wide. Add Nature Hills Root Booster to speed root establishment. Remove the pot or bag and situate it into the hole so the top of the soil (soil line if bareroot), is level with the new location’s soil being careful not to plant too deep. Water in again very well and backfill with the same soil you dug up, tamping down gently to ensure there are no air pockets.
Top off with a 3-4 inch thick layer of Arborist mulch. Consider staking your tree to keep its trunk growing straight for the first year to ensure it stands tall against strong winds and drifting snow.
When to Prune Macoun Apple TreesTrim off any broken branches from delivery as soon as you take them out of the box. Prune and trim apple trees while dormant, in late winter or early spring, before you see new growth.
How to Prune Macoun Apple TreesDormant prune to:
Remove any double leaders or narrow crotch angles
Eliminate any crossing branches
Thin interior branching and leave the fruiting spurs and strong branches in place opening up the canopy
Branching at least 24-36 inches above the ground
Prune Apple trees in the summer to:
Control size and shape by reducing the length of longer new growth on vigorous trees
Remove water sprouts on the main trunk or older branches in the crown
Remove suckers at the base of the trunk
Thin fruit during heavy years on established trees
How to Care for Macoun Apple TreesGrowing an apple tree is easy when proper soil, good drainage, attention to moisture, and regular fertility are maintained. Once you’ve chosen an apple tree that works for your climate, in the size you need for your landscape, and its pollinator (if needed), then you’ve accomplished half the battle!
Apple trees do best in full sun and well-drained soil
Water your apple trees when it gets dry – especially during the fruit production stage, and drought periods to keep it stress-free
Use arborists’ wood chips to mulch over the roots of your apples and have your soil tested to see what your soil may be lacking before adding fertilizers
Maintenance pruning and shaping
Apple trees will tolerate a wide range of soils, so long as water and nutrients are not limited and the pH level is adequate.
How to Fertilize Macoun Apple TreesFor the first year, water alone is most important. It is always best to get a soil test to see what your soil is lacking before adding more fertilizers. Once established, a fertilizer routine may be beneficial. We do offer some excellent slow-release organic options, applied according to the package directions.
Fruit trees need more phosphate and it’s possible to apply too much nitrogen which affects the soil’s pH. Test soil acidity or alkalinity using a pH Tester.
Fertilize in spring when you first see new growth emerging.
Don’t overdo it
Phosphates are your friends
Pay attention to pH in areas with extremely high or low soil pH
Follow the directions
