Prima Apple Scionwood


Prima Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Coop 2 [PRI 1225-100 (PRI 14-510 x NJ 123249)] PRI Coop, 1970.

One of the first disease-resistant varieties to hit the market, now resides among the tried and true. Medium-large roundish fruit has rich yellow skin with a striking orange-red blush. Resembles Jonathan, which is buried somewhere in its convoluted parentage. Mildly subacid juicy white flesh provides excellent fresh eating and makes good cider. Keeps a couple of months.

Open spreading tree bears annually if kept thinned. Proving to be hardier than anyone had thought. Scab immune and resistant to fireblight, cedar apple rust and mildew. Blooms early. Z4.

Additional Information


Scions are twigs, not trees. They have no roots and will not grow if you plant them.

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 17, 2023, for shipment around March 13. (Please note: we ship scionwood only in mid-March. If you would like to order rootstock to arrive in the same shipment, select mid-March shipping when adding the rootstock to your cart.)

We sell scionwood in two ways:
By the stick: One 8" stick ($6 each) will graft 3 or 4 trees.
By the foot: For orchardists grafting large numbers of trees of a particular variety, we also offer scionwood by the foot ($5.50/foot, minimum order of 10 feet per variety). In our own nursery work, we are usually able to graft 6-8 trees from one foot of scionwood.

You can graft right away or store scionwood for later use. It will keep quite well for several weeks stored in sealed ziplock bags in the refrigerator.
