This is a twig for grafting.Late Summer. (Antonovka x Okero.) A. Simon intro, Polli Agricultural Institute, Estonia, 1946.
Tart, peculiar and slightly bitter fruit is best suited for cooking and quickly softens to a decent thick sauce that isn’t too sweet. The skins don’t entirely break down but are easy to chew.
Medium-large slightly ribbed blocky conical fruit. In full sun the yellow skin has green spots, an occasional faint red blush, and sometimes a small patch of russet around the stem.
The name means ‘Lemon-Yellow Winter Apple’ in Estonian, but it ripens mid-September in central Maine. Fruit keeps a couple of weeks. Very winter hardy and early bearing tree. Imported from Estonia more than 15 years ago by Raivo Vihman.
Blooms early to midseason. Z4.

Scions are twigs, not trees. They have no roots and will not grow if you plant them.
The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 18, 2022, for shipment around March 14. (Please note: we ship scionwood only in mid-March. If you would like to order rootstock to arrive in the same shipment, select mid-March shipping when adding the rootstock to your cart.)
We sell scionwood in two ways: By the stick: One 8" stick ($5 each) will graft 3 or 4 trees. By the foot: For orchardists grafting large numbers of trees of a particular variety, we also offer scionwood by the foot ($4.50/foot, minimum order of 10 feet per variety). In our own nursery work, we are usually able to graft 6-8 trees from one foot of scionwood.
You can graft right away or store scionwood for later use. It will keep quite well for several weeks stored in sealed ziplock bags in the refrigerator.
