South Dundas Murals: #11. McIntosh Apple Mural - Dundela Community Centre

Artist: Sergeant David Bough, Cornwall


John McIntosh (1777-1846) came to Upper Canada in 1796 settling near Dundela in 1811. A farmer and itinerant clergyman, he discovered and developed the original McIntosh Red Apple, which became internationally famous. Later hybrids such as Cortland, Lobo, Empire and Spartan followed. The history of the apple was commemorated on the 1996 issue of the Canadian dollar coin.
