Blake of Windham Apple Scionwood
This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Westbrook, Maine, before 1869.
Medium-large roundish-conic-oblate yellow-green cooking and dessert apple with a crowned basin, sometimes a faint blush, and a dab of russet around the stem. Medium-juicy, dense and quite good. Citrusy, tart, almost bitter. Keeps until just after New Year.
For years we’ve been scouring Cumberland County west of Portland for Blake. This possible match comes from an ancient tree in Windham, not far from Westbrook. It fits the description quite well, but until we can make a positive ID, we’re calling it Blake of Windham. Many thanks to Dan and Shannon Johnson for providing scionwood from their old tree. Bloom time yet to be documented. Z4-7.

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.
