Blue Pearmain Scionwood Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. Thought to be from Middlesex County, MA, 1700s. One of New England’s most famous classic varieties. Incredibly beautiful medium to very large fruit is streaked and splashed with purplish-red, mottled with russet and covered with a distinct blue bloom. Fairly dry flesh, firm, dense and slightly crisp, sweet with a bit of a tart background flavor. Tasty eaten out of hand, although you might want to peel the thick skin. Our favorite for baked apples. It also makes excellent pies and tarts. The yellow applesauce cooks up in a couple minutes. Grown throughout much of Maine for well over 200 years, and still found here and there. Known by a number of synonyms including Blue Pear Maine, Maine Blue Pear, Blue Pearamay, Blue Pearamell, Blue Pomade and, one I heard recently, “Painbear Bluemain!” Keeps in the root cellar until midwinter. Blooms midseason. Z4-6.

Additional Information

Scionwood

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 16, 2018, for shipment around March 12.

We sell scions (scionwood) in two ways.
Each single 8" stick will graft 3 or 4 trees, and comes with a small paper ID label.
Scionwood by the foot (minimum order of 10 feet) will usually 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 twigs, not trees. They have no roots and will not grow if you plant them.
