Wickson Apple Scionwood
This is a twig for grafting. Fall. (Esopus Spitzenburg x Newtown) Albert Etter intro, Humboldt County, CA, 1944. One of the most flavorful apples we list. Small roundish blushed bright red fruit is crisp, juicy, tart, tangy and spicy. Extremely high in both sugar and acid. Sugar level of the juice is around 25%. Highly recommended for dessert, juice and as a sharp acid source in fermented cider. In September the tree looks like a mass of cherries. The unsung and generally unknown Albert Etter, who introduced Wickson as a champagne variety, was one of the great 20th-century plant breeders. Wickson bears young, heavily and annually. Blooms midseason. Z4-8.

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.
