This is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. A classic French dessert variety, possibly from Brittany. First cataloged in 1628 and distributed by nurseries in the U.S. by 1820.
Beautiful and interesting round fruit displays a range of colors from golden yellow to bright green to brick red, all covered by a thin web of russet. Fondly referred to as “Rainbow Russet” by MOFGA orchardist and fruit explorer Laura Sieger.
Crisp juicy yellowish-white mild subacid flesh. All-purpose—good for fresh eating, cooking and winter storage. Scionwood collected at the Maine Heritage Orchard. Z4.

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.
