Sharon Apple Scionwood
This is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. McIntosh x Longfield. SA Beach intro, Iowa Exp Stn, Ames, IA, 1922.
All-purpose aromatic subacid fruit is large, roundish-oblate-conic and red. Somewhat similar to McIntosh, though sweeter and firmer. Vigorous and productive.
Everyone knows McIntosh, but Sharon’s other parent, Longfield, is a Russian variety brought to the U.S. in the late 19th century that become popular in northern Maine and other cold U.S. districts. Sharon is probably hardy in most of Maine though it may be a disappointment in the coldest Upper Midwest zones. Uncertain bloom time. Z3/4-6.

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.
