Hudson’s Golden Gem Apple Scionwood


Hudson’s Golden Gem Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. AD Hudson’s Wholesale Nurseries, Tangent, Ore., 1931. A wild seedling discovered in a fence row and introduced soon afterward.

A truly fine dessert variety of unique appearance. Exceptional flavor, and sweet juicy crisp smooth firm-but-melting yellow pear-like flesh. Highly recommended for those who love to eat their apples out of hand. Nearly everyone loves the flavor after a single bite.

Magnificent medium-to-large distinctly conical and beautifully russeted long-stemmed fruit. Skin a soft yellow-tan overlaid with a fine weave of light and dark browns. A favorite in Oregon, more recently gaining notice practically everywhere apples are grown. Stores several months.

Productive scab-resistant tree resists powdery mildew and fireblight. Blooms mid-late. Z4.

Additional Information


Scions are twigs, not trees. They have no roots and will not grow if you plant them.

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 16, 2024, for shipment around March 11. (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 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 (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.
