Wagener Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Winter. Unknown parentage. Penn Yann, NY, 1791. Midwinter all-purpose storage variety widely grown in Maine during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Sometimes 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. I had to thin two-thirds of the fruit off my tree last summer. Brightly colored medium-sized blocky angular ribbed roundish yellow apples mostly covered with a red blush of dots and stripes. Fine-grained crisp tender very juicy subacid aromatic sprightly flavorful fruit. Naturally small tree. Blooms midseason. Z4-7.

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.
