Marlboro Scionwood
Marlboro Scionwood Apple Scionwood This is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. Marlboro, Hancock County, ME. Introduced by Seneca Remick (1834-1902), known in the area as “Captain” Remick. Rare fresh-eating and cooking apple. Crisp firm white pleasantly tart flesh. Makes a deep rich yellow tangy applesauce. Medium-sized fruit is slightly roundish-oblate, mostly covered with rich crimson, russet patches and netting, and very prominent white dots. Our scionwood comes from the original tree still standing in what was Remick’s front yard in Marlboro, not far from Bar Harbor. Discovered with the help of Don and Jo Cooper of the Lemoine Historical Society. Best eating in fall. Good cooking right into midwinter. Included on the 2009 Common Ground Country Fair T-shirt! Blooms midseason. Z4-6.

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.
