Twenty Ounce Apple Scionwood
This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Very large (20 ounce!) distinctive red and yellow striped slightly greasy-skinned cooking apple with firm white flesh. Once popular in nearly all of New York and New England. Our region has many great early and late-season cooking apples, but midseason can be slim pickins. Twenty Ounce fills that spot quite handily as a really good fall pie apple. Recommended for sauce and other cooking adventures. Old trees can still be found in Maine. Last fall we received a sighting and zipped off to see a great old tree only half an hour away. Blooms early-midseason. Malus. George Howland intro, Cayuga County, NY, before 1845. Z4-8.

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.
