Yellow Transparent Apple Scionwood

Yellow Transparent Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Summer. Imported from Russia, l870. Along with Red Astrichan, the classic northern New England summer apple. As ubiquitous as Duchess in Aroostook County. Heavy annual cropper of exceptionally early apples, some years in central Maine as early as the first week of August. Presumably called “Transparent” because you practically see through the clear light yellow smooth waxy tender skin. White juicy sweetly subacid flesh. The soft ripe fruit makes a magnificent purée-type applesauce. You can leave the food mill on the shelf. Can be good fresh eating, but catch them when they’re ripe because they don’t keep more than a few days. Best about a day on the green side. Blooms midseason. Z3-5.

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.
