Red St. Lawrence Apple Scionwood


Red St. Lawrence Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Early Fall. Branch sport of St. Lawrence. Newburgh, Maine, 20th century.

Early fall all-purpose variety with high dessert quality makes excellent sauce. Also makes a top-notch flavorful pie. Not a storage apple.

Originated as a spontaneous mutation (sport) on one branch of Roger Luce’s old St. Lawrence tree in Newburgh. Although marked with St. Lawrence’s typical striking dark red lines, the medium-large round-oblate apples also have a unique rich red ground color. The dark red stripes and the lighter red background is stunning. Tender sweet mildly subacid flesh, tinted with red. Blooms midseason. Z3.

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.
