Everett’s Back of the Shed Scionwood
Everett’s Back of the Shed Scionwood Apple Scionwood This is a twig for grafting. Cider apple. Unknown parentage, The Gore, Palermo, ME, about 1925. Cider apple with medium tannin. SG 1.050. A volunteer seedling that came up behind Everett’s shed in Palermo and appears to be about 80 years old. Roundish oblate, slightly lumpy, medium-small fruit with a long thin stem and yellow skin, nearly half covered with russet in one big patch covering the cavity and extending over the sides. Keeps all winter if you don’t press them into cider in November. The locals declared, “Why we just always called them, Old Everetts’ Cider Apples.” One of our personal favorites for making cider. Zones 3-6.

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.
