Chestnut Apple Scionwood

Chestnut Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Early Fall. MN 240 (Malinda x open-pollinated) U Minn, 1946. Golf-ball-sized fruit with truly excellent fresh-eating qualities. Yellow and bronze-red skin with some russeting. Firm crisp juicy fine-grained very sweet yellowish flesh. For a growing number of people in central Maine, late September is Chestnut apple time. For years we’ve put out a bushel a day at Fedco’s Common Ground Fair booth and watched them disappear. Neophytes often look at the little fruit with disdain, but most take one bite and their frowns turn to smiles. Chestnut needs no sugar to make a sweet and subtle sauce. Stores about a month. Medium-sized productive tree bears annually. Disease resistant. Blooms midseason. Z3-5.

Additional Information


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.
