This is a twig for grafting.Summer. Yellow Transparent x Montgomery. NY Ag Exp Stn, 1924. Bred to be an easier-to-grow modern replacement of sorts for the hardy Russian early season Yellow Transparent.
Not quite as pale and translucent as its parent, Lodi is nevertheless a highly attractive conical slightly ribbed smooth-skinned light green apple that appears to glow on the tree when ripe in midsummer. Medium- to fine-grained white flesh with green highlights.
Very tart fresh eating, more so than Granny Smith, which it resembles in color. Great for sauce and summer pies. Ripens in mid-late July. Does not store long. Blooms early. Z3.

Scions are twigs, not trees. They have no roots and will not grow if you plant them.
The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 18, 2022, for shipment around March 14. (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 ($5 each) 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 ($4.50/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.
