This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Esopus Spitzenburg x Newtown Pippin. Albert Etter intro, Humboldt County, CA, 1944.
One of the most intensely flavorful apples we list. Small roundish bright red fruit is crisp, juicy, tart, tangy and spicy. Extremely high in both sugar and acid. Sugar level of the juice is around 25%.
Highly recommended for dessert. Keeps until January. Becoming one of the most sought-after American cider apples, both for blending and as a single varietal. In September the tree looks like a mass of cherries.
Bred and introduced by the generally unknown Albert Etter, one of America’s most innovative and important fruit breeders of the 20th century.
Wickson bears young, heavily and most years. Blooms midseason. Z4.

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 21, 2020, for shipment around March 16.
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.
