GoldRush Apple Scionwood

GoldRush Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Winter. Co-op 38 {PRI 2750-6 [Co-op 17 (PRI 1689-100) x Golden Delicious]} Purdue-Rutgers-Illinois (PRI) Co-op, 1994. The first of the new disease-resistant varieties has superior storage qualities. Not only that, but it’s probably the best-tasting apple to come out of the PRI program. Love those Golden Delicious qualities! Medium-to-large round-conic fruit has uniform deep greenish-yellow opaque chewy skin that turns golden in storage. Creamy white green-flecked flesh is hard, very crisp, juicy and tart. A solid apple with excellent flavor. Serve them for dessert in February and March and no one will be disappointed. Ripens very late in fall, but will usually do so successfully in central Maine. Keeps until early May in the root cellar. Very precocious. Highly resistant to scab and powdery mildew. Moderate fireblight resistance. Moderately vigorous tree with a strong central leader. Blooms mid-late. Z4-9.

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.
