This is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. American of unknown origin, probably well before 1800. Also called American Golden Russet.
Small to medium-sized russet, continually confused with Golden Russet (of western New York). They are quite similar in appearance and taste. Highly flavored. Excellent dessert quality. Tender, rich, crisp, flavorful and everything else. Also makes good cider.
Bears more heavily than Golden Russet but does not keep as long in common storage. Still, good well into January. 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.
