A McIntosh-type apple discovered by Erick Leadbeater of Contoocook, New Hampshire. The fruit is 90 percent red and very firm with a crisp, juicy texture. Ripening two to three weeks later than conventional McIntosh, Hampshire™ Mac provides the opportunity to extend the McIntosh season. It performs well in southern growing districts as well and the tree exhibits very little fruit drop.
