Fuel Service Apple Scionwood


Fuel Service Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Bittersweet cider apple. Cammy Watts and John Bunker intro, Palermo, Maine, 2015.

Medium juicy, medium crisp and high in tannins. Begins to oxidize moments after cutting or grinding. (SG 1.062) Small 2" yellow fruit sometimes with a faint blush.

Discovered on a fruit exploring mission in Hancock County, Maine, in the fall of 2015. The small roadside wild seedling tree was loaded so we had to stop. Boy, were we happy. You will be, too.

Recommended for trial—we’re liking it so far. Uncertain bloom time. Probably 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.
