Tarecap Bitter Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Old seedling tree discovered by Thomas Foote, Hiram, ME.

Recommended for trial as a cider variety. Mildly astringent, mellowing after frost and hanging on the tree indefinitely. The round long-stemmed 2-3" fruit is an attractive ruddy rusty red over muted yellow-green ground color.

Currently on trial on our farm in Palermo. Scionwood made available through the generosity of Tom Foote. Uncertain bloom time. 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.
