Red flesh Apple scion
Posted: Sat Oct 22, 2016 8:50 pm
I'm going to attempt bench grafting for the first time this year. I have seen the red flesh apples and wondering if anybody has some scion to sell or be willing to give away.?

I, too, am interested in getting scionwood for red-fleshed apples. I tried fourseasons.com, but it is a hotel/resort site. Do you have other contact info for Derek Hills?DuckyDave wrote:I have two bench grafts of ref-fleshed apples from Maple Valley Orchards in Wisconsin: Winekist and Redfield. Bought in winter of '14 and planted that April, the Winekist bloomed this season and produced two flawless 2 x 2 inch fruit.
Ooops, forgot to see if you are in the States or in the UK. If in the States I recommend contacting Derek Hills at fourseasons.com. He is in Ohio, and has perhaps the largest red fleshed collection than any other private individual. His scions prices are excellent.
If you are in the UK, see if Nigel Deacon at suttonelms.org might cut you some scions. He has quite a list of red fleshed apples, too.
