April 18, 2004 Apple Tree Grafting

Apple scions are prepared for grafting to root stock of established trees in orchard.

The cambium (inner green bark layer) of the scion is aligned with the cambium of the root stock.

Wax is applied to protect grafted areas.


The tree at the right has knuckle where the root stock meets an established graft. This tree was grafted approximately 7 years ago.

The scions above are from the Crawfords of Akin-Bak farm in Franklin Mass.
This variety of apple was developed by them and named Sweet Sue after their granddaughter.
It is a favorite apple of many Franklin residents.
