King David Scionwood Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Chance seedling, thought to be to Jonathan x Arkansas Black. Washington County, AR, 1893. Intensely flavored dessert apple. For those who want flavor, this apple will become a favorite. In a good year, the initial bite is an explosion of flavors. You may wince, or even see stars. Pineapple, tangerine, lemon, sweet, sour, tart, sharp, aromatic and spicy all rush around simultaneously. The medium-sized roundish fruit is very dark solid maroon—nearly black. The fine juicy flesh is firm yet tender and distinctly yellow. Once grown here and there in Maine orchards. Now mostly forgotten. Ripens in the fall and keeps until the beginning of the year. Somewhat susceptible to scab, though we put up with it. It’s one of our favorites. Blooms midseason. Zones 4-6.

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.
