Duchess of Oldenburg Apple Scionwood

2.00

An 18th century Russian apple. They are wonderful for sauce and are recommended for drying. They were legendary in their time and tell us lots about apple tastes in the 18th century. People then wanted lots of flavor that would hold up through all sorts of cooking or drying processes. These are quite productive trees but are fairly disease prone. They have improved under organic care but they should be watched closely for fire blight. They tend to have less scab than some but they also will drop quickly if there is excess heat. They add nice aromatics to a cider.
