Black Oxford Apple Scionwood (Spring 2021)
A cold-hardy and disease-resistant heirloom apple from America. Also known as Black Apple, Oxford Black, Rock.
Black Oxford trees can live to be over 100 years old, but they do crop heavily and tend to biennialism if not well maintained. This tree is very winter hardy with good general disease and insect resistance.
A sweet and dense apple with a complex flavor, Black Oxford is one of our favorites here at Cummins Nursery. This medium-sized apple is a very dark purplish red, almost black, with a distinctive bluish bloom. The flesh is greenish-white and hard, with a balanced flavor that matures in storage. It will keep all winter, and it is a great all-purpose apple, good for fresh eating, baking, and cider.
Black Oxford is an antique American apple that was first discovered as a seedling by Nathaniel Haskell in Oxford County, Maine, in the late 1700s.
