Maiden Blush Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Late Summer-Fall. Probably Burlington, NJ, well before 1800. One of the oldest American varieties, ideal for all-purpose homestead use. Ripens over several weeks. Each waxen yellow cheek sports a crimson blush. Fine-grained white juicy flesh. A couple years ago Valerie Desrochers of Saco wrote to me, “This old tree is my friend and I would love to see it live on.” It was planted about the time of her grandfather’s wedding in 1890, and her brother was married under it. Something about that maiden’s blush? Her mother calls it “the Apple Pie Tree—sweet apples for pies and applesauce!” Ancient trees can still be found throughout Maine. Blooms mid to late season. Scionwood made available through the generosity of the Desrochers family. Z4-7.

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.
