Cora’s Grand Greening Apple Scionwood


Cora’s Grand Greening Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Unknown parentage, probably originated on North Haven Island, ME, before 1850.

Very large or even huge green blocky deeply ribbed high-quality all-purpose fruit often with a brilliant pinkish-red blush. It hardly looks like an apple. More like gigantic bell peppers on a tree. It’s become one of our favorites. Cook it up, or eat it fresh. It’s tart and quite tasty.

Brought to our attention by Becky Bartovics whose farm is defined by the tree that’s been leaning downwind for more than 100 years. Not knowing if it had a proper name, Becky named it after Cora Ames, the single woman who farmed the property in the 19th c. One of many ancient Maine-island varieties that only made it to the mainland in very recent years.

Incredibly rugged, long-lived and scab free. Blooms early-midseason. Z4.

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.
