Jefferis Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Unknown parentage. Isaac Jefferies intro, Newlin Township, Chester County, PA, before 1830. Excellent fall dessert apple—crisp, tender, juicy and slightly tart or mildly subacid. The Apples of New York calls it “delicious.” Enough tartness to suggest good cooking. By 1872 it was a recommended variety to grow in Maine. Medium-sized roundish-oblate-conic fruit is blushed and splashed with orangey-red. Introduced to us by the late Don Johnson of Herman, Maine, a backyard orchardist who was always on the lookout for new and interesting varieties. Jefferis was one of his favorite finds. Blooms mid-late season. Z4-8.

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.
