Porter’s Perfection Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Late fall. East Lambrook, England, 19th c. Medium bittersharp cider apple. Highly recommended. Although probably best used in blending, it is also one of the select few that ferments into an excellent single varietal. One of the favorites of grower and cidermaker Eric Schatt of western NY state. In fact, it may be his favorite. On trial here now. Small dark red fruit. Some astringency. (SG 1054; acidity .82%; tannin .25%) Probably Z4-7.

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.
