Chisel Jersey Apple Scionwood

Chisel Jersey Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Late Fall. Full bittersweet cider apple. Martock, Somerset, England, 19th c. One of the most famous of the Somerset bittersweets. Makes a strong rich cider. Best for blending. Medium acidity, highly astringent, harsh and high in tannins. (SG 1.059, acidity 2.2g/L, tannin 4g/L) Round to slightly conic slightly greasy fruit, colored with a beautiful combination of dull opaque reds, yellows and russets. In old English chesil means ‘pebble’—Chisel Jersey is small, hard and bitter! Spreading tree may require encouragement to develop a strong central leader. Consistent cropper. Closely related to Dabinett; they should not be relied upon to pollinate one another. One source recommends Harry Masters Jersey as a good companion in that regard. Late bloomer. 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.
