This is a twig for grafting.Summer. Yellow Transparent x Montgomery. NY Ag Exp Stn, 1924. Bred to be an easier-to-grow modern replacement of sorts for the hardy Russian early season Yellow Transparent.
Not quite as pale and translucent as its parent, Lodi is nevertheless a highly attractive conical slightly ribbed smooth-skinned light green apple that appears to glow on the tree when ripe in midsummer. Medium- to fine-grained white flesh with green highlights.
Very tart fresh eating, more so than Granny Smith, which it resembles in color. Great for sauce and summer pies. Ripens in mid-late July. Does not store long. Blooms early. Z3.

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.
