Fameuse Scionwood Apple Scionwood This is a twig for grafting. Early Fall. Unknown parentage. Canada, before 1700. Also called Snow. Excellent fresh eating, sauce and cider apple. The 1865 Department of Agriculture yearbook sums it up: “Flesh remarkably white, tender, juicy…deliciously pleasant, with a slight perfume… No orchard in the north can be counted as complete without this variety… It is just so good that everybody likes to eat of it; and when cooked, it is white, puffy, and delicious.” Famous in Maine for well over 150 years. Medium-small roundish ruby-red thin-skinned fruit. Keeps until late December. Thought to be a parent of McIntosh. Productive long-lived tree. As one of the few apples that comes relatively true-to-type from seed, occasional “variations on a Fameuse theme” can be found in old orchards. Susceptible to scab. Blooms mid-late. Z3-5.

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.
