Briggs Auburn (Waldo) Apple Scionwood

Briggs Auburn (Waldo) Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. Introduced by John C. Briggs of Auburn, Maine, before 1850.

Large round-oblate clear-yellow fruit with glowing greenish shading and a slight blush. All-purpose apple with bright well-balanced flavor, including hints of banana and blackberry, and chewy skin for superior fresh eating well into winter.

Top-notch cooking. Highly aromatic when you peel it. Produces a thick creamy golden-yellow medium-sweet applesauce, no sugar necessary. Excellent in oatmeal. In a pie the slices lose their shape but the crust won’t sink and pie doesn’t get watery.

Ripens in late fall and keeps all winter. Recently we’ve suspected that Brigg’s Auburn may have been called Naked Limbed Greening in Waldo County where our scionwood comes from. Z4-6.

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.
