Danziger Kantenapfel Apple Scionwood
This is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. Probably originating in Danzig (Gdańsk) Poland, before 1760.
Large to very large, nearly solid beet-red, and so deeply ribbed you might think it wasn’t an apple. The basin end is bunched, lumpy and furrowed, like puckered lips. Good for late fall fresh eating. Makes a nice raspberry-red sauce. Good pie apple.
Discovered growing at a seaside cottage in Harpswell, Maine, by Yves Van Damme and Robert McIntyre. The cottage sits across the road from the location of the old Hotel Germania, long gone, dating from a time when the coast of Maine was the preferred summer retreat for the rich and famous.
Scionwood from Harpswell. Uncertain bloom time. Probably Z4-7.

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.
