Burgundy Apple Scionwood


Burgundy Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Late Summer-Early Fall. NY 161 Monroe x NY 18491 (Macoun x Antonovka) NY Ag Exp Stn, 1974.

Northern Aroostook County fruit growers Steve and Barb Miller introduced Burgundy to us as Barb’s favorite cooking apple. Striking for its large (3") size and glossy purplish-red roundish fruit. Waves and rays of red in the firm juicy flesh. Strong distinctive aroma and a pleasantly unique flavor with a tart zingy aftertaste. One taste tester said, “Wow, hey, that’s really different!” Steve said, “It reaches out and grabs you!” Makes an aromatic well-balanced early cider.

Bears annually, and fruit hangs on for extended picking. Stores about two months. Recommended for all northern districts. Extremely hardy. Blooms late. Z3.

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 16, 2024, for shipment around March 11. (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 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 (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.
