Hudson’s Golden Gem Apple Scionwood

Hudson’s Golden Gem Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Tangent, OR, 1931. Discovered in a fence row and introduced soon afterward by A.D. Hudson’s Wholesale Nurseries. This is a truly fine dessert fruit of unique appearance and exceptional flavor. Sweet juicy crisp smooth firm-but-melting yellow pear-like flesh. A local favorite in Oregon, more recently gaining notice practically everywhere apples are grown. Popularized in Maine through the efforts of Mark Fulford. Magnificent medium-to-large distinctly conical russeted long-stemmed fruit. Skin a soft yellow-tan, overlaid with a fine weave of light and dark browns. Stores several months. Productive annual-bearing scab-resistant tree. Also resists powdery mildew and fireblight. 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.
