This is a twig for grafting.Late Fall-Winter. Probably from MA before 1850. Also called Munson.
Medium-large roundish oblate pale yellow fruit with the occasional blush. Fine-textured, juicy, sweet and very little acidity. Recommended for cooking and cider. This is one of the apples rediscovered by the late Russell Libby, longtime fruit explorer and beloved director of MOFGA. Identified by John Bunker, who collected scionwood. The old tree may now be gone, but we’re keeping Munson Sweet alive at the Maine Heritage Orchard and elsewhere. Blooms late. 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.
