Jonathan Apple Scionwood


Jonathan Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. Esopus Spitzenburg seedling. Woodstock, Ulster County, NY, before 1826.

A very high-quality all-purpose variety. The medium-sized roundish red fruit is excellent for fresh eating: firm, juicy, crisp, tender, aromatic and mildly tart. Also good for cooking. Stores all winter.

Productive, widely adapted and generally disease free. One of the most famous of all American apples. Named for Jonathan Hasbrouck, one of the apple’s first champions. Used extensively in modern apple breeding, being parent to dozens of varieties. Its most famous progeny include Jonagold, Idared, Melrose and King David. Some resistance to scab. Blooms midseason. Z4.

Additional Information


The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 19, 2021, for shipment around March 15.

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.
