Trailman Apple Scionwood

Trailman Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Summer. Trail x Osman. Beaverlodge Research Farm, Alberta, Canada, 1973. Wonderfully flavored dessert crabapple that ripens around Aug. 20 in central Maine. Translucent yellow skin has a porcelain finish, white bloom and sometimes a brownish-red blush. Fruit the size and shape of an egg. Spicy sweet exceptionally crisp and crunchy golden-yellow flesh. Visitors who try it in John’s orchard usually fall in love instantly. Some have called it the best summer apple they’ve ever tasted—some even call it their favorite apple of any season! Hangs on the tree for two weeks without softening. Precocious annually productive moderately vigorous somewhat drooping spreading tree. Exceedingly hardy, possibly to Zone 2. Might be tasteless south of Zone 5. One of the first to bloom at our place each year. Z2-5.

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.
