Hudson’s Golden Gem Scionwood
Hudson’s Golden Gem Scionwood Apple Scionwood This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Tangent, OR, 1931. Discovered in a fence row and introduced soon afterward by A.D. Hudson’s Wholesale Nurseries. This is a truly fine dessert fruit of unique appearance and exceptional flavor. Sweet juicy crisp smooth firm-but-melting yellow pear-like flesh. A local favorite in Oregon, more recently gaining notice practically everywhere apples are grown. Popularized in Maine through the efforts of Mark Fulford. Magnificent medium-to-large distinctly conical russeted long-stemmed fruit. Skin a soft yellow-tan, overlaid with a fine weave of light and dark browns. Stores several months. Productive annual-bearing scab-resistant tree. Also resists powdery mildew and fireblight. Blooms mid-late. Z4-9.

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.
