Primate Apple Scionwood


Primate Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Summer. Unknown parentage. Onondaga County, NY, before 1800.

Medium-sized light yellow-green fruit, often with a pinkish blush and scattered russet dots. Distinctly ribbed with a funny creased appearance. Watery crisp flesh is tart and aromatic. Great for fresh summer eating and cooking.

Another apple with a hoard of synonyms. Our favorite is Rough and Ready. A fit description for the lumpy fruit, which like most summer apples does not store well and should be used ASAP. Blooms early season. Z4.

Additional Information


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.
