A scion is a young shoot or twig of a plant or tree, especially cut for grafting and rooting. Scions are used for propagating trees by grafting a desired variety onto a suitable rootstock.
How does the Scion Exchange work? We will have over 100 varieties of scions available for purchase - many of which are heirlooms - as well as root stocks and other grafting supplies for a nominal fee. Admission is free to the exchange.
The scion list of varieties that will be for sale at the 2019 Scion Sale is available. Click here to download a spreadsheet that shows the names of more than a hundred apple scions that will available for purchase.
As part of the Scion Exchange, there will be a workshop for people who want to learn more about grafting techniques. Instructor Jim McGinty has been grafting and growing heirloom apple trees since 1990. Please make sure to arrive shortly before 11:00am in order to select your scion wood. 2 selections of scion wood are included with class registration fee. The class is $40.
Space is limited; preregistration required. Register here.
