This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Medium-bittersweet cider apple. Yarlington, near North Cadbury, Somerset, England, 1898.
Rich brown low-acid juice, mildly aromatic, fruity and not aggressively tannic. Above-average sugar content. (SG 1.053-1.075, acidity 2.2g/L, tannin 3.2g/L) Slow to medium fermentation.
Medium-sized yellow distinctly conic fruit with a pinkish blush and overspreading darker red stripes. Considered an all-round excellent cider variety: reliable, productive and adaptable to varying conditions. We’ve heard reports of it thriving in Zone 3. Steve Wood's other favorite bittersweet (see Dabinett). Highly recommended for home and commercial cider plantings. You may need to head back the leader in early years to encourage strong laterals. Midseason bloomer. Z3/4.

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 21, 2020, for shipment around March 16.
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.
