Thanks for the Cummin’s Nursery guide and the other fencing ideas. I have a lot of cider apple variety scions grafted onto B-118 and Antonovka rootstocks. Here’s my list, not all of which are specifically cider, but most are:
Harrison, as you, Ashmead’s Kernel, Black Oxford, Blue Pearmain, Bullock (like Golden Russet), Esopus Spitzenburg, Gnarled Chapman, Golden Russet (of NY), Pomme d’ Or, Pomme Grise, Pumpkin Sweet of Vermont, Red Boskoop, Belle de Boskoop, Wickson, William’s Pride, Winn Russet, Yarlington Mill, Kingston Black, Bulmer’s Norman, Hewe’s Virginia Crab, Franklin, Dolgo Crab, Hudson’s Golden Gem, Roxbury Russet, Knobbed Russet, Banane Amere, Blenheim Orange, Honeygold, Cox’ Orange Pippin, Candy Crisp
The last six, beginning with Knobbed Russet, are still on G-210 rootstocks and rather small. I am thinking I will grow them this year before taking scions from them this coming winter and abandoning them. And I am not sure the Cox’ Orange Pippin is something that will be worth the effort in my Zone 4b location (Montana).
Somehow, I am probably going to have to get all the varieties onto only twenty standard-sized trees–the limit put onto me by my wife–so I have to decide which trees will be single variety and which will have multiple varieties. I am thinking the desert and baking varieties will be the multiple grafting trees, and cider varieties mostly single. Also thinking some may not survive or thrive or fully ripen, and so I will eliminate those by trial and error over the years. Today or tomorrow, I am grafting some scions onto 3 year old trees I planted last year on two G-890, one MM-111, and three EMLA-106, for early trials, before giving the G-890 and MM-111 to daughter and abandoning the:EMLA-106 trees to be replaced by twenty B-118 and eleven Antonovka.
