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.

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.
