Winesap scion?

I know it's getting late in the season....but anyone out there growing this far enough north to still have dormant wood they could share?

I love the variety and although I know I am at the edge of it's possible harvest range I want to give it a try.

I also understand it is a scab magnet? But figure I can place it in with my scab magnet summerland macintosh and not lose too much ground on my overall orchard maintenance...

You might be able to purchase a stick at Maple Valley yet. I love this apple also but sadly I do not grow it in my orchard (...yet!).

They do have a great selection, and I don't mind paying for scions....sometimes even prefer it out of fear of picking up virus...but a 12$ min shipping isn't gonna work for a single variety

RE: Winesap scion?

If you send me a self addressed envelope I can give you a bit of old strain Winesap. Not especially a scab mag and I've a client that harvests useable fruit with no spray at all.

RE: Winesap scion?

That would be appreciated harvestman, and it is good news to hear that it has not been especially scab prone for you...everything I could find listed it as highly mcintosh is the only tree I have had consistent problems with, but the last few springs have been awfully wet and I am only working with sulfur.

I had thought to keep all the "problems" together should I give up on them, but with that info I might place it on another more vigorous tree.

I sent you an e-mail (through gardenweb) asking for an address, let me know if it doesn't show up.
