Apple identification

Asked September 2, 2015, 8:37 AM EDT

Hello: I recently purchased a home in Clarion County, and we have 2 apple trees that I believe are McIntosh or a variant of McIntosh such as Empire or Macoun, but would like an definite answer, if possible. The house was built in 1952, and I believe the two trees were planted some shortly after. I have attached pictures of the apples and also the trees. Thank you.

The fruit on the right looks like Empire, but the one on the left could be either Macoun or McIntosh. McIntosh will be ready for harvest in less than 2 weeks while Macoun will be later.
