Milwaukee Apple Scionwood


Milwaukee Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. Seedling of Duchess of Oldenburg, Milwaukee, WI 1899.

Large tart apples retain shape when cooked: a great choice for fried apples, crisps and pies. Dense dry fruit is also great for dried apple rings.

Roundish-oblate slightly ribbed fruit with glossy pale green skin marked with reddish-pink stripes and a russeted stem cavity.

Once popular throughout Wisconsin, the variety all but disappeared by the mid-20th century. With the help of Slow Food Wisconsin Southeast (WiSE) and the Milwaukee Heritage Apple Project, Milwaukee apples have been recently planted at public parks, schools and yards throughout the city. Z4.

Additional Information


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.
