Freedom Scionwood
Freedom Scionwood Apple Scionwood This is a twig for grafting. Early Fall. {NY 18492 (Macoun x Antonovka)} x NY 49821-46 {Golden Delicious x F2 26829-2-2 ((Rome x Malus floribunda 821) x (Rome x Malus floribuna 821))} NY Stn, 1983.

Very high-quality and highly disease-resistant all-purpose apple ripens in early October and keeps until New Year. Large roundish fruit almost entirely covered with bright red stripes.

Juicy firm spicy flesh. Recommended for fresh eating, sauce and juice. We still haven’t tried it in a pie.

This precocious tree is vigorous, spreading, spur-forming, productive and annually bearing. From the same breeding program that developed Liberty. Some growers like it better than Liberty. Cross made in 1958, tested for nearly 25 years before release and considered immune to scab and highly resistant to powdery mildew, cedar apple rust and fire blight. Recommended as a pollinator for other varieties. Blooms midseason. Z4-7. Maine Grown. (3-6' trees)

Additional Information


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.
