Milton Scionwood Apple Scionwood
This is a twig for grafting. Late Summer-Fall. (Yellow Transparent x McIntosh) New York Stn, Geneva, NY, 1923. Although mostly known as a cooking apple, we like Milton as a dessert fruit as well. The medium-sized roundish fruit has a thin tender rosy-red skin and slightly tart aromatic white moderately juicy flesh. Cooks up very quickly into a smooth yellow sauce with skins that almost completely dissolve. We also like it as a pie apple. Although the fruit gets saucy, the crust holds up well. Ripens in early September in central Maine, about a month before McIntosh. Not a keeper. Susceptible to scab. Blooms early to midseason. Zones 3-7.

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.
