This is a twig for grafting. Winter. MN 90 (Malinda x open-pollinated) U Minn, 1923. One of the first introductions from the Minnesota Horticultural Research Center and still the most commonly grown apple in Minnesota.
A nearly perfect all-purpose apple for those in northernmost areas. Roundish-conic bright red striped to mostly solid red fruit, with moderately conspicuous dots and some russeting. White firm crisp juicy flesh. Pleasant sprightly subacid flavor for fresh eating, pies, baking, sauce, freezing and cider.
Highly productive and reliable. Harvest in October, keeps until March. Extremely hardy naturally small tree with a strong central leader and well-formed wide-angled branching habit. Sets fruit heavily; thin some of the small apples to ensure larger fruit size and encourage annual cropping. Fruit quality and size also seems to respond noticeably to better soils. Blooms late. Z3.

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 21, 2020, for shipment around March 16.
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.
