This is a twig for grafting.Fall-Winter. Co-op 4 [PRI 1659-1(Starking Delicious x PRI 610-2)] PRI Co-op, 1972. (PRI 610-2 is a complex cross including Rome, Malus floribunda 821, Golden Delicious and McIntosh.)
Dark red conical scab-immune fruit with a very good crisp sweet flavor. The second variety released in the PRI disease-resistance breeding program and still one of its best. Rarely found in catalogs anymore, perhaps because the patent ran out.
This is as close as you&@8217;ll get to the dreaded Red Delicious in a Fedco listing. But no apologies—it&@8217;s a very good dessert apple. Highly productive—you will likely need to thin your crop to boost the fruit size.
Resembles Empire but without the scab susceptibility. Also resistant to sooty blotch. Will keep into midwinter.
Blooms midseason. Z4.

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.
