Granite Beauty Apple Scionwood

Granite Beauty Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall-winter. Zephaniah Breed intro, Weare, New Hampshire, before 1860. Very large roundish red fruit. A rare dessert apple once in southern NH over and up into southern and coastal Maine. You might describe the flesh as having an initial burst of “warm spice” reminiscent of coriander or cardamom. This spiciness is quite subtle when the fruit is first picked but appears to intensify in storage as the apple’s juicy cream-colored flesh becomes less crisp and more tender. Sauce is loose, pink, tart and tasty. Cooks down easily and the skins mostly dissolve. Harvest in the fall. Will keep in ideal storage conditions until February or even later. Z4-6.

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.
