This is a twig for grafting. Fall. MN 447 (Frostbite) x open-pollinated. Super Chilly Farm, Palermo, Maine, 2009.
Small russeted dessert apple with a long stem and a few faint pinkish-orange stripes. The skin almost feels like a kiwi. A large pipsqueak might approach 2" in diameter. For such a diminutive fruit it packs a lot flavor. We eat them raw or baked whole rolled in cinnamon and sugar.
One of our friends called it “the best apple I’ve ever eaten.” It’s surprisingly juicy, full of good flavor—tropical like a piña colada. Great eating apple—rivals the Trailman. Ripens around October 1 in central Maine. A favorite of the kids at the Community School on Mount Desert Island in the fall of 2015. Blooms midseason. 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.
