Freedom Apple Scionwood


Freedom Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Early Fall. Macoun x Antonovka. NY Stn, 1983. Very high-quality and highly disease-resistant all-purpose apple ripens in early October and keeps until around New Years.

Large roundish fruit almost entirely covered with bright red stripes. Juicy, firm and spicy flesh. Recommended for fresh eating, sauce and juice. This precocious tree is vigorous, spreading, spur-forming, productive and annually bearing. From the same breeding program that developed Liberty. Cross made in 1958, tested for nearly 25 years before release and named for its “freedom” from scab, powdery mildew, cedar apple rust and fire blight. Blooms midseason. Z4.

Additional Information


Scions are twigs, not trees. They have no roots and will not grow if you plant them.

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 16, 2024, for shipment around March 11. (Please note: we ship scionwood only in mid-March. If you would like to order rootstock to arrive in the same shipment, select mid-March shipping when adding the rootstock to your cart.)

We sell scionwood in two ways:

  • By the stick: One 8" stick will graft 3 or 4 trees.
  • By the foot: For orchardists grafting large numbers of trees of a particular variety, we also offer scionwood by the foot (minimum order of 10 feet per variety). In our own nursery work, we are usually able to graft 6-8 trees from one foot of scionwood.

You can graft right away or store scionwood for later use. It will keep quite well for several weeks stored in sealed ziplock bags in the refrigerator.
