Martha Crab Apple Scionwood

Martha Crab Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Late Summer. M. baccata seedling. Peter Gideon intro, Excelsior, MN, circa 1839. Large-fruited crab recommended for fresh eating as well as for jellies, jams and other cooking enterprises. Beautiful bright rosy-red striped fruit. Yellowish flesh is coarse, crisp, juicy and quite delicious. Jason Davis of Cayford Orchards in Skowhegan, Maine, introduced me to their three old trees a few years ago. Medium-sized and annually bearing, extremely long-lived and hardy. Zones 3-6.

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.
