Medaille d’Or Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Late Fall. Full bittersweet cider apple. Parentage unknown. Developed by M. Goddard of Boisguillaume, Rouen, France, probably mid-19th century. The gold medal of cider apples, introduced into England in 1884. Full bittersweet, high in bitterness and astringency. (SG 1.053-1.059, acidity 2.1-2.7g/L, tannin 4.4-6.4g/L) Combine with other late varieties.

Small-to-medium roundish-conic yellow fruit mostly covered with a netting of golden russet and sometimes featuring a soft reddish blush.

In the 1993 British text The Book of Apples, Joan Morgan and Alison Richards wrote that it “produces sweet, heavily astringent juice and full bittersweet cider often high in alcohol, fruity and good quality.”

Wide spreading vigorous tree with good branch angles. Scab resistant but said to be susceptible to fireblight. Blooms late season. Z4.

Additional Information

Scionwood

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 21, 2020, for shipment around March 16.

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.
