Spencer Apple Scionwood

Spencer Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Late Fall-Winter. Summerland S-5-4 (McIntosh x Golden Delicious) Summerland Ag Res Stn, British Columbia, 1959. This relatively unknown dessert apple has an avid following of commercial and home orchardists here in Maine and throughout the Northeast. The large, oblong conic yellow fruit blushed with light scarlet red is crisp, firm, juicy and sweet. According to grower Phil Norris, it has “all the sprightliness of Golden Delicious combined with the incomparable sweet-tart ambrosia of a perfectly ripe Mac.” It ripens after McIntosh and keeps relatively well. The tree is vigorous, upright-spreading and annually bearing. Blooms midseason. Zones 4-6.

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.
