Jonamac is a cross between the Jonathan and McIntosh.

These apples are often marketed as "before Mac" because they can be picked before its parent McIntosh. 

The Jonamac combines the rich taste of a McIntosh with the spicyness of a Jonathan to represent the best qualities in one apple.

What’s it like?

• Sweet, but mildly tart with a hint of spice

• Juicy

• Skin is thin and hardly noticeable when chewing

Best uses:

• Excellent for eating

• Good for sauce, baking

Special Hint:

• The slices tend to be juicy, so you will need a thickener for pies.


• September through April
