Moses Wood Apple Scionwood

Moses Wood Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Summer. Unknown parentage. Winthrop, Maine, before 1847. Late-summer dessert and cooking apple, medium-sized, roundish to conic with distinct ribbing and lobes around the calyx end. Light yellow skin with a pink blush and red stripes. White medium- to fine-grained tender very juicy flesh, definitely subacid. Excellent tart fresh eating. That tartness also adds a kick to its early season pies. Vigorous upright productive tree. Named for the itinerant Winthrop grafter who traveled on horseback spreading apple varieties around central Maine long before the days of Fedco. Blooms midseason. 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.
