Sweet Sixteen Apple Scionwood

Sweet Sixteen Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. MN 1630 (MN447 x Northern Spy) U Minn, 1979. Truly excellent fresh eating, although it is too sweet for some palates. Whenever anyone eats a Sweet Sixteen for the first time, you know they will be surprised. Fine-textured crisp flesh contains an astounding unusually complex combination of sweet, nutty and spicy flavors with slight anise essence, sometimes described as cherry, vanilla or even bourbon. We always love Sweet Sixteen season. Round-conic bronze-red medium-sized fruit, striped and washed with rose-red. Annual bearer if thinned. Reaches its best flavor and texture in northern districts. Keeps till midwinter. One of the wonderful progeny of Frostbite. We hope to introduce more of them! Some resistance to scab. Blooms mid to late season. Z3-6.

Additional Information


The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 15, 2019, for shipment around March 11.

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.
