Golden Russet (of NY) Scionwood Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Winter. Uncertain origin. Thought to be from England, New York or New England, before 1800. The champagne of cider apples, ripening late in fall when the best sweet cider is ready to be made: sweet, balanced, thick and smooth. Also recommended as a sharp component for fermented cider. Excellent eating; keeps all winter and well into spring. For more than 100 years, orchardists have been attempting to sort out the various russets. Several different apples have been called Golden Russet. Most resemble one another visually, but differ in fruit qualities and tree habits. This is most likely the Golden Russet of Western New York. Round medium-sized fruit keeps all winter and maintains its superior sweet flavor. Vigorous diverging upcurving tree with long willowy branches. Scab resistant. Blooms early to midseason. Z4-6.

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.
