Belmac, which was developed in Quebec and introduced in 1996, is by now confirmed by many growers to be the best of the disease resistant McIntosh replacements. Medium to large, firm, cardinal-red apples are similar to Spartan–to which Belmac is also closely related. A good, reliable, all-purpose choice for both the home orchard or pick-your-own operations. Keeps well.
