Sweet Red Apple Scionwood

Sweet Red Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Unknown origin and parentage. We pick this apple at the Apple Farm in Fairfield, Maine. Royal Wentworth, former longtime owner of the orchard, always called it Sweet Red. Medium-sized roundish red-striped and blushed fruit. Low in acidity and high in sugar. We like it for cooking and apple molasses. Makes a surprisingly tart smooth beautiful sauce. I’ve spent a lot of time attempting to establish its true identity. Might possibly be Park’s Sweet from nearby Skowhegan. Might also be the more well-known Ramsdell Sweet or Sweet Pearmain. Z4-6.

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.
