Westfield Seek-No-Further Apple Scionwood
This is a twig for grafting. Winter. Westfield, Massachusetts, before 1800. Excellent fresh eating. A Hudson River grower of 200 varieties declared it “the best apple in the world.” In The Apples of New York SA Beech describes it as “firm, medium in grain or a little coarse, crisp tender, breaking juicy, mild subacid, rich, sometimes astringent, peculiarly aromatic, sprightly, very good to best.” Also an outstanding drying apple. Medium-sized fruit covered with dull rusty red and russet. Vigorous hardy rugged long-lived tree. Keeps till midwinter. Our scionwood came by the generosity of Mike Clark and his ancient tree in Thorndike, Maine. One of Massachusetts’ most famous apples. Blooms midseason. Z4-6.

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.
