Yarlington Mill Apple Scionwood

Yarlington Mill Apple Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Medium-bittersweet cider apple. Yarlington, near North Cadbury, Somerset, England, 1898. Once common in farm orchards of central Somerset. Steve Wood’s other favorite bittersweet. Highly recommended for commercial plantings. (SG 1052, acidity 2.2g/L, tannin 3.2g/L) Medium-sized yellow conical fruit with a pinkish blush and overspreading darker red stripes. Considered an all-round excellent cider variety: reliable, productive and adaptable to varying conditions. Rich brown low-acid mild lovely aromatic fruity cider, not aggressively tannic. Above-average sugar content. Slow to medium fermentation. You may need to head back the leader in early years to encourage strong laterals. Midseason bloomer. 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.
