Pipsqueak Apple Scionwood

Pipsqueak Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. MN 447 (Frostbite) x open-pollinated. Super Chilly Farm, Palermo, Maine, 2009.

Small russeted dessert apple with a long stem and a few faint pinkish-orange stripes. The skin almost feels like a kiwi. A large pipsqueak might approach 2" in diameter. For such a diminutive fruit it packs a lot flavor. We eat them raw or baked whole rolled in cinnamon and sugar.

One of our friends called it “the best apple I’ve ever eaten.” It’s surprisingly juicy, full of good flavor—tropical like a piña colada. Great eating apple—rivals the Trailman. Ripens around October 1 in central Maine. A favorite snack of the kids at the Community School on Mount Desert Island. Blooms midseason. Z4-7.

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.
