Marlboro Apple ScionwoodThis is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. Marlboro, Hancock County, Maine. Introduced by Seneca Remick (1834-1902), known in the area as “Captain” Remick. Rare fresh-eating and cooking apple. Crisp firm white pleasantly tart flesh. Makes a deep rich yellow tangy applesauce. Medium-sized fruit is slightly roundish-oblate, mostly covered with rich crimson, russet patches and netting, and very prominent white dots. Our scionwood comes from the original tree still standing in what was Remick’s front yard in Marlboro, not far from Bar Harbor. Discovered with the help of Don and Jo Cooper of the Lemoine Historical Society. Best eating in fall. Good cooking right into midwinter. Included on the 2009 Common Ground Country Fair T-shirt! Blooms midseason. Z4-6.
