This is a twig for grafting. Late summer. McIntosh x Worcester Pearmain. Also called Tydeman’s Early Worcester. Kent, England 1940.
Solid purple, early season dessert and sauce fruit that somewhat resembles McIntosh. Firm and pleasant. This is a purple apple. Not deep-purple like Black Oxford but a softer light purple with some slight striping visible. The russet stem patch is a very rich orangy russet. The overall effect is quite beautiful. Does not keep. A good apple in its season and was grown commercially about 40-50 years ago. Some commercial orchards still have a few trees. Z4.

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 19, 2021, for shipment around March 15.
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.
