Canadian Strawberry Scionwood
Canadian Strawberry Scionwood Apple Scionwood This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Unknown parentage. Solon, ME. 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

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.
