Macoun Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. NY 547 (McIntosh x Jersey Black) NY Stn, 1923.

This is an apple with a near cult following, even though practically no one seems to know how to pronounce the name. (It rhymes with town, not tune!) Especially good choice for those who like McIntosh but live south of Maine where Macs might not reach their prime. Medium-sized ribbed lobed truncate fruit, almost entirely covered with a dark purplish-red blush. The very juicy aromatic white flesh is crisp with a rich sweet flavor. Excellent for fresh eating.

Large vigorous upright spreading tree. Moderately productive. Although susceptible to scab, the fruit appears to be less affected than McIntosh. Macoun also shows some natural resistance to insect damage. Blooms mid-late season. Z4.

Additional Information

Scionwood

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.
