This is a twig for grafting.Fall. Bittersweet cider apple. Unknown parentage. A seedling discovered by John Bunker in Farmington, Maine, in 2017.
Small to medium oval-conic fruit with a faint orange blush that shades the green skin to olive. Seems to be scab-free and highly insect resistant.
In a stand of other seedlings with codling moth damage, the fruit on this tree had none. Juicy and very astringent; a good addition to a cider blend. (5.5 Brix, 1.063 SG) One of the varieties on trial in MOFGA’s low-intervention no-spray South Orchard. Z4.

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.
