Blenheim Orange Apple Scionwood


Blenheim Orange Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. From outside the walls of Blenheim Palace, Woodstock, Oxfordshire, England, before 1800.

Large beautiful rich-yellow oblate fruit with a prominent red blush and a big russet splash surrounding the stem. The Apples of New York calls Blenheim “excellent for either dessert or culinary use.” Crisp and juicy. Keeps until about mid-December.

One of the most famous English heirlooms and one of the few varieties from England to be grown successfully in Maine early on, probably arriving here well before 1870. In 2014 we found four ancient Blenheim trees down near Boothbay. Our scionwood comes from the USDA collection in Geneva, NY. Blooms midseason. Z4.

Additional Information


The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 19, 2021, for shipment around March 15.

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.
