This is a twig for grafting. Late Summer. Thought to be an Arctic seedling. Fred Ashworth intro, Heuvelton, NY, 1956.
Very good dessert fruit with a nice flavor balance, some banana essence, tropical and pineapple. Medium-large deeply ribbed blocky green fruit usually with a red blush, russet netting, and a deep cavity. Crowned with those “Red Delicious” bumps around the blossom end.
Discovered in Barnard, VT, and later introduced by Fred Ashworth, founder of the well-known St. Lawrence Nurseries. Probably Z3.

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 21, 2020, for shipment around March 16.
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.
