Idared Apple Scionwood

Idared Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Winter. Jonathan x Wagener. Idaho Exp Stn, 1942. A popular all-purpose commercial apple in New England that has a great deal going for it. It’s delicious fresh eating, cooks well in pies and sauce and keeps until late spring. On the 20th of May one year John pulled one out of the root cellar and it was still firm, tasty and spritely. Medium-large roundish ever-so-slightly ribbed fruit, almost entirely blushed with a solid bright cheerful “1940s red.” The ground color is reminiscent of Jonathan and Prima. Sometimes there’s a russet patch around the stem. Firm smooth fine-grained juicy pure white flesh is mildly yet decidedly tart, with enough flavor to distinguish it from the more tasteless sweet inventions of recent times. Annual bearing, small-moderate sized productive tree. Early-blooming. Z4-6.

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.
