Fruit tree Scionwood is the graftable one-year old wood variety (e.g. apple such as ‘Honeycrisp‘, or a pear such as ‘Bartlett’) wood for grafting scionwood to a rootstock or ‘understock’. In Snohomish, Washington we cut scionwood in January and February and hold chilled thru July. Scroll down for a list of 100+ varieties. Also see the next page for an excel file with an updated column of scionwood available-you can also order on this link by sending a modified file with your choices. It’s also a place to order trees that are not in inventory. See below for a compact list with recommendations.
1 scion (8.5″ typical) should make 3 or 4 2-bud grafts. Prices: $5 for 1; 2 = $9.50; 3 = $13.50; 4 = $17; 5=$20; 6 to 9 $4 each; 10 to 20 $3.50ea., 21 to 50 $3 ea.; 51 to 100 $2.50 ea.; 100-200 $2 ea., 200 – 500 $1.00 ea.; 500+ $0.80 ea.
Collectors! Over 10 single varieties (1 stick each) add $1.00 per scion, doubles do not add $1. e.g. 13 varieties -add $3; or e.g. 10 singles+3 doubles for a total of 13 varieties/16 scions- no extra charge
Choose scionwood from the list below, then email or mail your selections –Do not make payment unless you have a list of alternates as some varieties are very limited-but most wood is available through July. Please send along address and preferred shipping date, and preferred diameter-default is ASAP and 3/16″-1/4″ with 1/8″-3/8″ available.

Rootstock choices are:
(Let me know your desires as order goes in early and I don’t always handle hundreds unless there’s a call for this)
Apple: New Rootstock available and updated after 2/23
Mark, 3/16″ 20% 10+ available, Mark has been a good performer for us-especially in pots. They are stronger-rooted than emla27 or p22 but are sensitive to drought- drip irrigate on a schedule!
EMLA27,¼”(20%), 20 available; P22 1/8″and 3/16″ 50+ available: Trees on m27 and P22 are great value for the amateur and home gardener needing compact, precocious trees for small gardens or patio pots. Trees need little pruning after the first five years, except for occasional shortening back of spurs.
Bud 9,¼”(25%), 100 available 2/25: Bud 9 has exceptional winter hardiness, crown rot resistance (phytophthora), promotes open scion growth, and produces crops in two to three years with a yield efficiency like that of M-9. Bud 9 is common in high-density plantings, planted 2 to 4 feet apart in the row. Also used as interstem on Bud 118 and EMLA111
EMLA 9,¼”(30%) 10 available: Like Bud 9, EMLA 9 is a full dwarf withg high precocity, heavy soil tolerant, phyththora resistant, wooley apple aphid resistant and to it’s credit, not quite as brittle as Bud 9. Space 2 to 4 foot in the row
Nic 29®, 3/8″(m9/30%), Stocky, 100+ available. When considering a high density orchard the M-9 Nic® 29 rootstock would be a good choice if you’re looking for a more vigorous M-9 clone. Highly recommended for those diploid varieties where vigour is necessary to bring the apples to a good size.
Geneva 11®, 1/4” (35%), ~20 available,apple replant disease.
Geneva 16®, (35%) 5 available-Virus susceptible where latent viruses reside in particular varieties, has survived severe drought, limited use. All I ask is… why?
PAJAM-2®, 40%) ~5 available-When considering a high density orchard the M-9 Pajam 2® rootstock would be a good choice if you’re looking for a vigorous M-9.
EMLA26, (45%), 100 Available Recommended for use on all but badly drained soils. It is particularly valuable as a dwarfing stock where satisfactory performance on M-9 is in doubt. It is useful for high density plantings. When budded with spur-type scions, EMLA 26 should be planted on soils of higher fertility. EMLA 26 is not as vigorous as EMLA 7, but is much easier to manage in the orchard.
Supporter® 4, ¼” (55%) 10 available: Trees on Supporter® 4 are more uniform than those on M-26 with little burr knotting and overgrowth, also it is more collar rot resistant. Precocity similar to M9(medium-high). This rootstock is ideal for low-vigor or replant sites and low-vigor varieties.
EMLA 7, 3/16″(60%), 5+ available Strongly anchored, tends to throw suckers, lower precocity efficiency than smaller stocks, a good semi-dwarf variety for low fertility sites and low water.
Geneva 30®, 5+ available(60%) similar to M7 but somewhat brittle, might want to stake it, limited
EMLA 111 3/16″ (70%) 10+available : more avail after 2/23
Bud 118 3/16″(95%) 50+ available-coming later: Excellent for No-water sites and low fertility. These are self-supporting, Excellent for “double-working” or interstem grafts.
Interstem Rootstock are $12.50. They are 2 years old unless noted. We use B118 or EMLA111 rootstock with B9, P22 or EMLA 27 10-12″ interstem. These are taller in shipping where we use 36″+ boxes. Priority Shipping is $22 with $2 each additional tree.
Quince A, 3/16″(60%) 15 available, Some varieties (Bartlett, Bosc, Seckel and Clapp) are not compatible with the Provence Quince clones, and thus require an interstem to form a strong union. Anjou, Comice, Flemish Beauty and Swiss Bartlett are varieties which are compatible with Quince rootstock. Support of trees should be considered.
Quince BA29-C, ¼”(65%) 5 available, Grafted to Rescue and Flemish Beauty as an interstem, same as Quince A
Old Home x Farmingdale 97, none available (90%), A clonal rootstock of Old Home x Farmingdale, this rootstock is resistant to pear decline and fireblight. It is a superior rootstock for vigorous pear trees. Hardy and resilient to cold. It provides good anchoring and yield efficiency.
Rootstock Prices are $3 each, 3 = $8, 6=$14, 10=$20, 20-39=$1.75 ea., 40+=$1.50 each; shipping=$20/up to 10, $.20 each additional.
Bench grafted BUDDED trees are $15 each, shipping is $20 up to 8 trees. $0.50 each additional: 1 year old and last year’s budded are ALSO $15-unless noted see Grafted Trees 2016
