Summer Rambo Apple Scionwood
This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Possibly from Rambour, France, before 1550.
One of the oldest varieties still being grown. A favorite fall sauce and general cooking apple. Ripens in mid-September in central Maine. Juicy, mildly subacid and sweet. Large to very large pinkish muted-red blushed and striped oblate fruit.
The honest-to-God inspiration for the name of the leading figure in the David Morrell novel First Blood and the iconic series of movies starring Sylvester Stallone. Don’t throw away your best shot! Bloom midseason. Z4-7.

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.
