Peach of Montreal Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Late Summer. Thought to be of French or Russian origin, before 1876. Also called Peach or Montreal Peach; known as Pomme Pêche in Québec.

All-purpose fruit to follow Duchess in colder districts. Excellent in sauce and nearly as good as Gravenstein in a pie. Develops from subacid to a richer and mellower flavor as the season progresses.

Conical rich-yellow fruit often with a bright “peach-like” orange-red cheek. I love the comment Vic Caron of New Hampshire made years ago: “I think they are aptly named, the Peach is a peach.” Still found in central and western Maine, across northern Vermont and New Hampshire, and into Quebec.

Introduced to us by Josh Karp of Cate Hill Orchards in Craftsbury Common, VT. Z3-5.

Additional Information


The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 15, 2019, for shipment around March 11.

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.
