Garden Sweet Apple Scionwood


Garden Sweet Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Late Summer. Uncertain origin. Probably from Maine, about 1840. Ephraim Goodale started Maine’s first tree nursery in Orrington and developed fruit tree cultivars for cold climates. An early proponent of Garden Sweet, Goodale may have been involved in its origin.

Picture-perfect conical rosy-red sweet apple was once grown widely in central and southern Maine. Time for it to make a comeback! Medium-sized rounded tree. 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.
