Redfield Apple Scionwood
This is a twig for grafting. Fall. (Wolf River x Niedzwetzkyana) NY Station, 1938. One of the best and largest of the red-fleshed apples. Highly recommended for cider and pies. Medium-large fruit with opaque solid rusty-red skin. Also makes wonderful jelly and red sauce. Gained fame in the hard-cider world thanks to the wonderful single-variety Redfield cider and Redfield blends made by the late Terry Maloney of West County Cider. Sharp and bitter. Flesh is two-toned: deep pink fading to white around the core. The flowers are also two-toned, deep pink, tipped with small white lightening bolts. And the bronze-red foliage adds further interest all season. One of the very first to bloom each year. Z3-6.

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.
