This is a twig for grafting. Fall. An obvious stand-out among scattered seedling trees discovered growing in Richmond, ME, by Tom Vigue back in 1993. Tom collected scions and grafted what he would come to call Richmond Pink onto a wild tree in Sidney and has been happy with the vigorous annual producer.
Large very light yellowish-white fruit with crimson splashes and stripes. Subacid citrusy flesh is often tinged with pink. One of the many apples from Maine exhibited at the first annual Wild and Seedling Pomological Exhibition held in Ashfield, MA, in the fall of 2019. Z4.

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 19, 2021, for shipment around March 15.
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.
