Cherryfield (aka Collins) Apple Scionwood

Cherryfield (aka Collins) Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Wyman B. Collins introduction, Cherryfield, Maine, about 1850. Very rare all-purpose variety from Washington County, Maine. Medium-sized conic greenish-yellow fruit, washed and striped with red. Greenish-white flesh is crisp, tender, fine-grained, mild and tart. Ripens in mid-late fall and stores until January. The original tree was still standing in 1907 but then the variety disappeared into obscurity for 100 years. Old trees were discovered in 2006 with the help of Majory Brown, Larry Brown, Kathy Upton, all of Cherryfield. The apple was originally known as Collins but was later renamed Cherryfield to distinguish it from the Arkansas variety of the same name. Z4-6.

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.
