Reinette Simirenko Apple Scionwood

Reinette Simirenko Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Winter. Ukraine, before 1895. May have originated on the farm of Platon Simirenko in the Ukraine although some say it’s just a synonym for a fine old 19th c. New Jersey apple called Wood’s Greening. Became an instant favorite—in the all-time top five, according to one taster—the day we were introduced to Reinette at the Fedco Warehouse. Medium-sized round waxy dotted grass-green fruit, often with a brownish-orange or pink blush. Sort of a Granny Smith for the North. Greenish-yellow tender crisp fine-grained subacid flesh makes excellent eating. The Classical Fruits catalog calls it a “sweet, wine-like tangy flavor.” Ripens where Grannys do not. Stores well. Blooms late. 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.
