This is a twig for grafting.Winter. MN 1711 (Keepsake x open-pollinated) U Minn, 1991.
Medium-large fruit, mottled and striped red over yellow. Sweet and juicy with hard snapping-crisp texture. Top quality in September.
Improves steadily in storage. Unusual because it ripens in early fall yet keeps up to seven months in the root cellar.
First of the many excellent University of Minnesota introductions to receive large-scale commercial attention, now has a huge following. Our best-selling apple. Probably best planted north of Massachusetts; less suited to warmer districts.
Tends towards annual bearing. Relatively small low-vigor upright spreading tree. Above-average scab resistance. Blooms mid-late season. Z3.

Scions are twigs, not trees. They have no roots and will not grow if you plant them.
The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 17, 2023, for shipment around March 13. (Please note: we ship scionwood only in mid-March. If you would like to order rootstock to arrive in the same shipment, select mid-March shipping when adding the rootstock to your cart.)
We sell scionwood in two ways: By the stick: One 8" stick ($6 each) will graft 3 or 4 trees. By the foot: For orchardists grafting large numbers of trees of a particular variety, we also offer scionwood by the foot ($5.50/foot, minimum order of 10 feet per variety). In our own nursery work, we are usually able to graft 6-8 trees from one foot of scionwood.
You can graft right away or store scionwood for later use. It will keep quite well for several weeks stored in sealed ziplock bags in the refrigerator.
