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 and now one of the tried and true. Although other catalogs have dropped Prima in favor of newer “designer” varieties, we still think very highly of it. 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 eating and makes good cider. Keeps a couple of months. Open spreading tree bears annually if kept thinned. Proving to be hardier than anyone thought. Scab immune; resistant to fireblight, cedar apple rust and mildew. Bears annually. Blooms early. Z4-6.

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.
