Marlboro Apple Scionwood

Marlboro Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall-Winter. Marlboro, Hancock County, Maine. Introduced by Seneca Remick (1834-1902), known in the area as “Captain” Remick. Rare fresh-eating and cooking apple. Crisp firm white pleasantly tart flesh. Makes a deep rich yellow tangy applesauce. Medium-sized fruit is slightly roundish-oblate, mostly covered with rich crimson, russet patches and netting, and very prominent white dots. Our scionwood comes from the original tree still standing in what was Remick’s front yard in Marlboro, not far from Bar Harbor. Discovered with the help of Don and Jo Cooper of the Lemoine Historical Society. Best eating in fall. Good cooking right into midwinter. Included on the 2009 Common Ground Country Fair T-shirt! Blooms midseason. Z4-6.

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.
