Smokehouse Apple Scionwood
This is a twig for grafting. Fall/Winter. Seedling of Vandevere. Lampeter Township, PA, about 1800. All-purpose apple still quite popular in Pennsylvania and occasionally grown in central Maine. Most admired as a culinary variety, particularly for pies. Medium-large roundish-oblate mildly flavored delicately aromatic tart fruit. Downing calls it, “rather rich subacid.” Although its name comes from having originated adjacent to William Gibbons’ smokehouse, the fruit looks smoky, colored with a muted blend of yellows, greens and a reddish-brown blush. The long willowy branched tree is easily recognized in the orchard. Keeps well into late winter. Some scab resistance. Blooms midseason. Z4-6.

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.
