Canada Reinette Apple Scionwood


Canada Reinette Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Winter. Possibly from Normandy, France, before 1771. High-quality all-purpose russet winter storage apple with a deceptive name, an uncertain history, and more synonyms than we can name.

Roundish-conic, medium to very large, yellow to olive green with a reddish blush and mostly covered with russet. Firm, moderately tender, coarse, juicy, subacid and very good.

Despite its name, it’s thought to have originated in France. It arrived in Maine well before the Civil War and by 1850 was grown throughout much of the state.

Still very popular in Europe a hundred years later. We even found the beautiful fruit at a convenience store in Villaviciosa, Spain, under the name Reineta Canada.

Recommended for those with root cellars. Mid-late bloom. Zone 4 or maybe 3.

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.
