Redfield Apple Scionwood (Spring 2023)


A unique, late-season, red-fleshed apple.

This is an extremely cold-hardy (to zone 3), vigorous tree with slight resistance to fireblight and high resistance to scab. It has striking red wood and pink blossoms.

Redfield is a beautiful, large apple with a deep, dark red skin that wears a fine net of russet. The dramatically red flesh is firm and yields a red juice with a tart, aromatic, and astringent flavor. Redfield will not store for more than a couple of weeks, but it is a fantastic baking and preserves apple. Too acidic for fresh eating (for most palates), it has, however, found favor with cider makers; it makes a lovely, bittersweet, blush cider.

Developed by the Geneva research station in NY, Redfield is a cross of Wolf River and Malus niedzwetzkyana that was released in 1938.

Clean vs. Regular

Our clean scion is harvested from trees grown on G.16, which is extremely sensitive to viruses. These trees would not have survived if the scion contained viruses. Our clean wood has not been lab tested. Regular = may contain one of the common latent viruses; this is not usually a problem and can be used with most rootstocks.
