Fireside Scionwood

Fireside Scionwood Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. (McIntosh x Longfield) U Minn., 1943. Extremely hardy, excellent storage variety. Large round-to-oblate shiny light red fruit with darker stripes and splashes covering a yellow base. Firm crisp juicy yellow flesh is mild, approaching sweetness. Good for fresh eating, salads and baking. Taste-test comment: “I wouldn’t mind having a bushel of these.” Highly productive, vigorous, broadly spreading, somewhat up-curving tree. Recommended for trial in all northern districts. Zones 3-5.

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.
