This is a twig for grafting. Early Fall. Full bittersweet cider apple. Probably from Nehou, Normandy, France, before 1900. Introduced by HP Bulmer Ltd, Hereford, England, circa 1920.
Best for blending with other early fall ripeners. Roundish-conic medium-sized yellow fruit, often with a pinkish blush. Soft, juicy, low-acid, sweet and astringent. (SG 1.057, acidity 1.7g/L, tannin 6g/L)
Probably brought from France long ago and renamed. Although called Nehou in English cider literature, as far as we can tell, there’s no French cider apple by that name. Boré and Fleckinger’s comprehensive Pommiers à Cidre: Variétés de France has no listing. Midseason bloomer. Z4.

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.
