Dixmont Crab Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Laura Sieger and John Bunker intro, 2015. Wild seedling crabapple with unusual flavor and cider potential. Small (less than 2") dark red long-stemmed fruit. SG 1.074. Good fresh. Makes a strong-flavored single-variety sauce. Discovered on an apple identification trip to an old Ben Davis orchard in Dixmont in the fall of 2015. Amid the loaded Ben Davis trees, this seedling tree grabbed our attention. Hard to believe it could be a Ben Davis seedling. It’s probably not. No scab. Uncertain bloom time. Probably Z4-6.

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.
