Hurlbut Scionwood

Hurlbut Scionwood Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Late Fall. Unknown parentage. General Leonard Hurlbut introduction before 1850, Winchester, CT. A very good fall dessert and cooking variety. Quite likely one of the first varieties to be grown in central and southern Maine. Beach calls it “moderately firm, rather fine, tender, crisp, very juicy, aromatic, mildly subacid, good to very good.” I agree. Makes a nice loose mild pink sauce. Small to medium-sized roundish and slightly oblate fruit, largely covered with red stripes and dotted blush. Large russet stem splash. Looks like a small Wolf River with the coloring of a Northern Spy. Traditionally grown throughout much of central and southern Maine. Keeps until early winter. Z4-7.

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.
