This is a twig for grafting.Late Summer-Early Fall. Tartu region, Estonia.
Medium-sized oblate (flattened) fruit is light yellow with a pink blush. Flesh is white, dense, juicy, tart and sweet. We like the fresh eating flavor very much and it also cooks up nicely in desserts. Ripens in September and keeps extremely well. Tree is of average vigor with a wide growth habit.
Imported from Estonia in 1999 by local timber-framer Raivo Vihman, with the assistance of John Bunker. After a long quarantine period in its facility in Beltsville, Md., the USDA sent us scionwood. We had no idea what we’d get, and we’ve been pleased.
Annual bearing. Bloom time is average to early. Probably Z4.

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.
