Jonamac- a new apple from Geneva
Because of this good performance over a 17-year period both in Experiment Station trials and in commercial orchards, Jonamac is introduced as a Mclntosh-type dessert apple, ripening about 8 days before Mclntosh. It is not suitable for processing. Having better red color and better eating quality than Mclntosh, it appears to be best suited to replace some of the Mclntosh apples that are now harvested immature and put onto the market before they are ripe. Jonamac has been suggested as a replacement for Mclntosh. It is offered as a worthy new apple that should be eminently useful both to the commercial grower and to the home gardener.
