Legace Scionwood
Legace Scionwood Apple Scionwood This is a twig for grafting. Late Summer-Early Fall. Probably a Duchess seedling. Van Buren, Aroostook County, ME, before 1907. This is one of the best-tasting apples I’ve sampled on fruit exploration trips to Aroostook County. Although its true identity is yet to be determined, it perfectly fits WM Munson’s 1907 description in Preliminary Notes on the Seedling Apples of Maine. Ripens in September and keeps for about a month. Medium-small roundish to slightly conic red-striped fruit. Very juicy yellowish flesh has some red along the core line and a subacid flavor. Not a sweet apple. Medium-sized annually productive tree. No scab. Extremely hardy. Recommended for trial in coldest regions. Z3-4.

Additional Information

Scionwood

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.
