Red Gravenstein Apple Scionwood

Red Gravenstein Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Late Summer. Uncertain Italian or German origin, 17th c. or earlier. The most famous of all pie apples. Ripens earlier than most cooking apples, over the course of several weeks so you don’t have to deal with them all at once. But they don’t keep well. Also good for dessert and sauce. Of the many Gravenstein strains, this one is stripey purple-red and can be found in old orchards in southern Maine. Gravensteins are still grown commercially in Nova Scotia and on the West Coast. On a trip to northern California in the heart of what I figured was Gravenstein country, we stopped for lunch at a small grocery store and I headed straight for the produce cooler. There they were, looking just like home! Large vigorous perfectly shaped tree. Easy to prune. Triploid, will not pollinate other varieties. Blooms early. Z4-8.

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.
