Autumn Arctic Scionwood Apple Scionwood This is a twig for grafting. Late Summer. Thought to be an Arctic seedling. Fred Ashworth intro, Heuvelton, NY, 1956. Very good dessert fruit with a nice flavor balance, some banana essence, tropical and pineapple. Medium-large deeply ribbed blocky green fruit usually with a red blush, russet netting, and a deep cavity. Crowned with those “Red Delicious” bumps around the blossom end. Discovered in Barnard, VT, and later introduced by Fred Ashworth, founder of the well-known St. Lawrence Nurseries. Probably Zones 3-6.

Additional Information

Scionwood

We offer scionwood (twigs for grafting) from a wide selection of fruit trees. The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 17, 2017, for shipment around March 16. Rootstocks can be sent with your scionwood order.

We sell scions (scionwood) in two ways.
For those grafting up to 3 or 4 trees of a variety, one 8" stick will suffice. Each single 8" stick comes with a small paper ID label. This is how most of our customers purchase scionwood.
For commercial orchardists and others grafting large numbers of trees of a particular variety, we also offer scionwood by the foot (minimum order of 10 feet). In our own nursery work, we are usually able to graft about 6 or 8 trees from one foot of scionwood.
You can graft right away or store it for later use. Stored properly, it will keep quite well for several weeks.

Scions are not trees!
Scions are twigs, not trees. They have no roots and will not grow if you plant them. They are cuttings from branch tips collected in the winter to be grafted in the spring.
