This is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. Wellington Johnson James (c. 1861-1945) introduction, Charlotte, Washington County, ME, before 1940.
Native Maine late-fall dessert variety introduced to John in the 1990s by Paul Molyneaux of Whiting, Maine. Brilliant, extremely shiny red round-conic fruit is covered with a mass of small white dots. A real knockout! These are the “beauties” of Wellington. Off-white flesh with a hint of pink when ripe.
Ready to eat about November 1 in central Maine. Z4.

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.
