Brown Snout Apple Scionwood


Brown Snout Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Late Fall. Medium bittersweet cider apple. Yarkhill, Herefordshire, England, about 1850. Small conical yellowish fruit, occasionally with an orange blush. Aptly named for the brown russet patch on the pointed basin end that resembles the muddied muzzle of a farm dog digging for voles. Soft dry white flesh with slight astringency. Still grown commercially in England for cider production. (SG 1.053; acidity 0.24%; tannin 0.24%) Recommended for blending. Late bloomer. Z4.

Additional Information


Scions are twigs, not trees. They have no roots and will not grow if you plant them.

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 17, 2023, for shipment around March 13. (Please note: we ship scionwood only in mid-March. If you would like to order rootstock to arrive in the same shipment, select mid-March shipping when adding the rootstock to your cart.)

We sell scionwood in two ways:
By the stick: One 8" stick ($6 each) will graft 3 or 4 trees.
By the foot: For orchardists grafting large numbers of trees of a particular variety, we also offer scionwood by the foot ($5.50/foot, minimum order of 10 feet per variety). In our own nursery work, we are usually able to graft 6-8 trees from one foot of scionwood.

You can graft right away or store scionwood for later use. It will keep quite well for several weeks stored in sealed ziplock bags in the refrigerator.
