Belle de Boskoop Apple Scionwood

Belle de Boskoop Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Winter. Probably a chance seedling from Holland, 1860. May also be a synonym or mutation of Montfort. Long the farm apple of Europe, every backyard had a Boskoop. Big blocky somewhat lumpy green fruit largely patched and netted with russet, sometimes has a brownish reddish blush. Every chef in Europe knows Boskoop—it cooks beautifully. Quickly reduces to a nice sauce: yellow, soft and medium tart. Grower David Maxwell of Nova Scotia calls it “an absolutely outstanding apple…seemingly resistant to everything. I didn’t spray them at all and they are absolutely clean. The taste is equally outstanding.” Quite tart right off the tree. However, after storage, the acidity softens and it becomes a very good table apple. Keeps well. Robust, strong-growing tree. Blooms early. Triploid, not a pollinator for other varieties. 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.
