Cole’s Quince Scionwood
Cole’s Quince Scionwood Apple Scionwood This is a twig for grafting. Summer. Introduced by Captain Henry Cole, Cornish, ME, about 1840. Large flattish-conical ribbed bright yellow fruit often with a brownish blush. Reminiscent of a quince! This is my favorite midsummer cooking apple. In central Maine they ripen toward the end of August. Still good into mid-September. Unlike many other summer varieties, you can ripen them on the tree and let them drop. They won’t be funky and they don’t rot if you blink a couple times. In the morning I go out to the tree, pick up the four or five that dropped overnight and put them to use. They cook up quick into morning applesauce. Delicious with oatmeal. They make an excellent pie. Productive and mostly annual. Blooms early. Z4-6

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.
