Looking for My Jewel apple variety

Postby kmkorsz » Fri Feb 19, 2016 10:59 pm

Hello, I have been looking all over trying to find some "My Jewel" Scion wood for grafting in spring of 2016. These apples are apparently pretty hard to find and are supposed to have a banana like taste to them. If anyone happens to have any of these kind of apple trees or knows anyone who does I was wondering if you could please send me a few Scion cuttings. Of course I would send some money to cover the shipping. Or if someone knows of an orchard or a website that sells Scion wood and has this variety.

Secondly, if anyone knows of any other good / strange varieties of apples that have a different taste please let me know.
Thanks for your help

what sort of taste are you looking for? If you are still looking for banana flavor, you may want to look at winter banana. It's more banana flavor than taste.

I guess I am looking for the banana taste. I am not quite sure what the difference is between taste and flavor to be quite honest. I have heard of the winter banana apple before and was thinking about trying it. Have you tried that one?

Try emailing the folks at http://www.epicenteravocados.com/ they used to grow it. Might be a bit late to get scion from them this year though.
