Canadian Strawberry Apple Scionwood

Canadian Strawberry Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Unknown parentage. Solon, Maine. Beautiful superb-tasting dessert apple. One of the best dessert varieties we offer. Very good early season cider. Perfectly ripe at the end of September in central Maine where, in a good year, you won’t find a better apple. In 2002 we put Canadian Strawberry up against Cox’s Orange Pippin and Chestnut crab at a Common Ground Fair taste test and it beat both of them. Surprisingly juicy distinctly tart full-flavored medium-to-large round-conic fruit. Rich buttery-yellow skin overspread with a veil of vibrant red-orange. In 1996 the late Roy Slamm convinced me to visit and subsequently propagate nursery stock from the three ancient “Strawberry” trees on his South Solon farm, thus saving the apple from almost certain extinction. Now they are being spread throughout “Fedcoland.” Medium-sized upright tree bears annually. Fruit does not keep well. Blooms midseason. Not to be confused with Chenango Strawberry. Z4-5.

Additional Information

Scionwood

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 15, 2019, for shipment around March 11.

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.
