Egremont Russet Apple Scionwood

Egremont Russet Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Late Fall. Probably originated at Petworth, the estate of Lord Egremont, in Sussex, England, before 1872.

High-quality flavorful dessert apple. Fruit is medium-small, roundish and entirely russeted. Before the obsession with Honeycrisp and all the Cox’s Orange Pippin types, Egremont was highly sought after by dessert-apple collectors. We received our scionwood several decades ago through the wonderful old Pomona magazine of NAFEX (North American Fruit Explorers).

Rugged, reliable and hardy, it has produced for us here in central Maine for nearly 30 years. Blooms early-midseason. Z4-7.

Additional Information


The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 15, 2019, for shipment around March 11.

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.
