Nehou Apple Scionwood


Nehou Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Early Fall. Full bittersweet cider apple. Unknown parentage. Probably Nehou, France, before 1900.

Soft, juicy, low-acid, sweet and astringent. (SG 1.057, acidity 1.7g/L, tannin 6g/L) Not quite as bitter as Dabinett and Harry Masters Jersey. Best for blending with other early fall ripeners.

Medium-sized somewhat oblate and oblique yellow fruit with a reddish blush and some striping.

Presumably originated near Nehou on northwest coast of Normandy although there are no records of a French variety by that name. Likely renamed Nehou when it was brought to England by HE Durham in the 1920s and popularized by HP Bulmer’s cider company. Renaming apples has been a tradition for centuries! Midseason bloomer. 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.
