Holzer Russet Apple Scionwood

Holzer Russet Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Late Summer. John Bunker intro, Palermo, Maine, 1995. Medium-sized roundish blocky fruit entirely covered with orange russet accented by a few faint reddish russet stripes. Tasty flesh is crisp, dense, medium juicy, rather acidic and slightly astringent. Suitable for blending in fermented cider. Would probably be categorized as a bittersharp. SG 1.065. Large old seedling tree first discovered by John Bunker while out on a Sunday stroll in 1995. Never been pruned, sprayed or otherwise tended. Always scab-free. Ripens in mid-September in central Maine. 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.
