This is a twig for grafting. Late Summer. MN714 (Yellow Transparent x Liveland Raspberry) U Minn, Excelsior, MN, 1949.
Like other apples from U Minn, Oriole is extremely hardy, bred to withstand the cold conditions of a Minnesota (or Maine!) winter. Medium to large fruit is almost spherical with orange-yellow skin splashed and striped with red. Cream-colored flesh is lightly acidic, juicy and surprisingly crisp for an early summer apple. Good for fresh eating and cooking. Does not keep much more than a week after picking. Eat ’em up! Z3.

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.
