Tumanga Apple Scionwood


Tumanga Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. Cox’s Orange Pippin x Schoner von Nordhausen. Kaiser Wilhelm Institut, Muncheberg, Germany, 1930.

Crisp, juicy and sweet, this intense aromatic rich dessert and juice apple resembles Cox’s Orange Pippin. Medium-sized round-to-oblate yellow fruit, half covered with a dusty mauve-red overcoat and a large ring of russet radiating out from the stem.

Called Auralia in Germany, where it has been grown primarily for its excellent juice. Another of the fine varieties brought into the light for us by Mark Fulford of Monroe, Maine, who also introduced us to Hudson’s Golden Gem and Redfield.

Not susceptible to scab. Stores until midwinter. Late midseason bloomer. Z5.

Additional Information


Scions are twigs, not trees. They have no roots and will not grow if you plant them.

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 16, 2024, for shipment around March 11. (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 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 (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.
