Bullock Apple Scionwood


Bullock Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. American apple of unknown origin, probably well before 1800. Also called American Golden Russet.

Small to medium-sized russet, continually confused with Golden Russet (of western New York). They are quite similar in appearance and taste. Highly flavored. Excellent dessert quality. Tender, rich, crisp, flavorful and everything else. Also makes good cider.

Bears more heavily than Golden Russet but does not keep as long in common storage. Still, good well into January. Z4.

Additional Information


Scions are twigs, not trees. They have no roots and will not grow if you plant them.

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 16, 2024, for shipment around March 11. (Please note: we ship scionwood only in mid-March. If you would like to order rootstock to arrive in the same shipment, select mid-March shipping when adding the rootstock to your cart.)

We sell scionwood in two ways:

  • By the stick: One 8" stick will graft 3 or 4 trees.
  • By the foot: For orchardists grafting large numbers of trees of a particular variety, we also offer scionwood by the foot (minimum order of 10 feet per variety). In our own nursery work, we are usually able to graft 6-8 trees from one foot of scionwood.

You can graft right away or store scionwood for later use. It will keep quite well for several weeks stored in sealed ziplock bags in the refrigerator.
