This is a twig for grafting. Fall. French cider apple. Possibly from Gironde, Brittany, France.
Mildly bitter and astringent. (SG 1.053) Considered a sweet or mild bittersweet for cider. Medium-sized, slightly ribbed, oval, oblong, yellowish-green with a pinkish-brownish blush. Resembles a small Yellow Bellflower. Ripens late September in western NY state. Although still early in our trials, we’re happy with its growth and hardiness and consider it worth trialing for cider potential.
We got our original scionwood from the USDA ARS collection in Geneva, NY. Uncertain bloom time. Z4.

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.
