Tolman Sweet Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall-Early Winter. Unknown parentage. Sometimes called Talman Sweet, Taulman Sweet, Tomey Sweet and a host of other variations. Possibly from Dorchester, Mass. Extremely old. One of the first American apples and one of the few to remain popular for centuries. Truly an all-purpose fruit, used for cooking, dessert and even animal fodder. Once popular for pickling, boiling and baking. Interesting peculiar sweet strange flavor you’ll never forget. Likely the most recognizable flavor of any apple. It’s sort of a 17th-century taste. Some like it and some don’t. I do. Moderately juicy medium-sized greenish fruit, often marked by a suture line running from top to bottom and sometimes with a bit of a blush. Long-lived heavy-bearing medium-sized vigorous tree. Still quite common in small old central-Maine farm orchards. Z4-6.

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.
