Brandywine Scionwood
Brandywine Scionwood Apple Scionwood This is a twig for grafting. 20x20' M. ioensis ‘Plena’ Klehm’s No. 8 (M. x purpurea ‘Lemoinei’ x M. ‘Klehm’s Improved’) Incredibly beautiful fragrant flowers followed by unbelievably bitter fruit. Deep red buds open to small deep pink double rose-like blossoms. Put an arrangement of these flowers in a vase, and people will swear they are roses. One of the most fragrant crabs. Some growers will hate the unattractive 1–2" yellow fruit that drop in the fall and make a mess. Cidermakers will love it. Very high in tannin. In Cider Digest a few years ago, one grower wrote, “You ought to try planting a crab called ‘Brandywine’. WOW!!! what a real mouth-killer as far as tannin goes….Couldn’t tell you the acidity because my tongue had gone dead.” Loosely rounded tree. Blooms very late. Zones 4-7.

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.
