Major Apple Scionwood

Major Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Early Fall. Full-bittersweet cider apple. Probably originated in central Somerset County, England, before 1900. Medium-sized pinkish-red roundish-oblate-conic fruit, sometimes ribbed and usually featuring a yellowish russet splash around the stem. The flesh is sweet, soft, “woolly,” juicy and bitter. (SG 1.054, acidity 1.8g/L, tannin 4.1g/L) Recommended for combining with other early varieties such as Ashton Bitter, Ellis Bitter and Nehou. Vigorous tree with a good central leader and a spreading branching habit. Similar to the Jersey-type cider varieties. Scab resistant. Late blooming. Z4-6.

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.
