Wagener Apple Scionwood


Wagener Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Winter. Unknown parentage. Penn Yan, NY, 1791.

Midwinter all-purpose storage variety widely grown in Maine during the 19th and early 20th c. Bright medium-sized blocky angular ribbed roundish yellow fruit mostly covered with a red blush of dots and stripes. Fine-grained, crisp, tender, very juicy, subacid, aromatic and sprightly. Naturally small tree was traditionally planted as a filler between large standard trees. The Wageners would fruit young and eventually be removed when the big Baldwins kicked in.

Precocious annually bearing tree produces very heavily. The fruit lines up along the branches so thickly you’ve got to look hard to see any wood. Blooms midseason. Z4.

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 17, 2023, for shipment around March 13. (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 ($6 each) 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 ($5.50/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.
