This is a twig for grafting. Bethel, Vermont, before 1855. Classic all-purpose Vermont heirloom. One of Vermont’s most famous varieties. Mild subacid flavor, moderately juicy and moderately crisp. Large dark red fruit covered with even darker red stripes and many dozens of prominent white dots. From a few feet away it looks solid red. Slightly bulbous around the stem. Bulging ribs.

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.
