Harrison Scionwood
Harrison Scionwood Apple Scionwood This is a twig for grafting. Mid-Late Fall. Vintage cider apple. Unknown parentage. South Orange, Essex County, NJ, as early as 1712.

One of the most renowned American cider apples, dating from the early days of domestic cidermaking. Harrison cider was famous and considered to be better than champagne. Medium-small oval yellow-skinned fruit. Rich firm dry yellow flesh.

According to William Coxe in 1817, it makes a “high coloured, rich, and sweet cider of great strength, commanding a high price in New-York, frequently ten dollars and upwards per barrell.”

Vigorous productive tree. A Harrison revival is underway in several locations on the East Coast. Performing well in our central-Maine trials. Appears to be plenty hardy. Z4-8. Both Maine Grown. (3-6' trees)

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.
