Red St. Lawrence Apple Scionwood


Red St. Lawrence Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Early Fall. Branch sport of St. Lawrence. Newburgh, Maine, 20th century.

Early fall all-purpose variety with high dessert quality makes excellent sauce. Also makes a top-notch flavorful pie. Not a storage apple.

Originated as a spontaneous mutation (sport) on one branch of Roger Luce’s old St. Lawrence tree in Newburgh. Although marked with St. Lawrence’s typical striking dark red lines, the medium-large round-oblate apples also have a unique rich red ground color. The dark red stripes and the lighter red background is stunning. Tender sweet mildly subacid flesh, tinted with red. Blooms midseason. Z3.

Additional Information


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.
