Grafting and Growing Apple Trees

This week on Cider Blog we take a trip to Lewis Creek Farms to learn about grafting apple trees.

Did you know that if you plant a Granny Smith apple seed you don't get a Granny Smith apple tree? If you want to grow a Granny Smith you have to take a cutting from an existing tree and graft it on to a new rootstock.

Hard Cider apple varieties we grafted:

  • Roxbury Russett

  • Goldrush

  • Harrison

  • Medaille d'Or

  • Harry Master's Jersey

  • Dabinett

  • Yarlington Mill

  • Wickson

  • Kingston Black

  • Ashmead's Kernel

  • Chisel Jersey
