Briggs Auburn (Waldo) Scionwood
Briggs Auburn (Waldo) Scionwood Apple Scionwood This is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. Introduced by John C. Briggs of Auburn, ME, before 1850.

Large round-oblate clear-yellow fruit with glowing greenish shading and a slight blush. All-purpose apple with bright well-balanced flavor, including hints of banana and blackberry, and chewy skin for superior fresh eating well into winter.

Top-notch cooking. Highly aromatic when you peel it. Produces a thick creamy golden-yellow medium-sweet applesauce, no sugar necessary. Excellent in oatmeal. In a pie the slices lose their shape but the crust won’t sink and pie doesn’t get watery.

Ripens in late fall and keeps all winter. Recently we’ve suspected that Brigg’s Auburn may have been called Naked Limbed Greening in Waldo County where our scionwood comes from. Z4-6. Maine Grown. (3-6' trees)

Additional Information


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.
