Canada Reinette Apple Scionwood
This is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. Probably Normandy, France, before 1770.
Medium-large, roundish-conic, yellow to olive green with a reddish blush. Can have a few stripes around the stem and various amounts of russet. Firm, moderately tender, coarse, breaking, not crisp, juicy, subacid, very good.
Still a very popular commercial variety in Europe. We even saw them in small corner grocery shops in northern Spain. Named in a list of best three apples in Dexter, Maine, in 1848; exhibited at the Maine Pomological Society in 1850.
Pick them in late October in central Maine. They will keep until spring. Hardy, has done well in Aroostook County. Blooms midseason. Z3-6.

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.
