Cherryfield (aka Collins) Scionwood
Cherryfield (aka Collins) Scionwood Apple Scionwood This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Wyman B. Collins introduction, Cherryfield, ME, about 1850. Very rare all-purpose variety from Washington County, Maine. Medium-sized conic greenish-yellow fruit, washed and striped with red. Greenish-white flesh is crisp, tender, fine-grained, mild and tart. Ripens in mid-late fall and stores until January. The original tree was still standing in 1907 but then the variety disappeared into obscurity for 100 years. Old trees were discovered in 2006 with the help of Majory Brown, Larry Brown, Kathy Upton, all of Cherryfield. The apple was originally known as Collins but was later renamed Cherryfield to distinguish it from the Arkansas variety of the same name. Z4-6.

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.
