Champlain Apple Scionwood


Champlain Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Late Summer-Early Fall. Probably northern Vermont, before 1853. Also called Haverstraw Pippin, Nyack, Paper Skin, Underdunk, Walworth and more.

Dessert and cooking apple of particular interest to Vermonter apple-history buffs. Pale yellow and red-blushed ribbed fruit has fine-textured juicy subacid flesh. Productive tree bears young and often annually. In our effort to introduce lesser-known New England varieties, we obtained Champlain scionwood through the generosity of the late Nick Botner. Now growing in the Maine Heritage Orchard collection. Z3.

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.
