    Anyone going to have scions from these trees, or any other late dropping crabapples to swap?

    letemgrow,

    I can prune you off some Ralph Shay in a couple of weeks, 1" to 1 1/8" deep red fruit that does not drop until spring.

    Great winter wildlife food, but unfortunately not much help for deer hunting.

    I know it's the wrong time of year for this, but if anyone has some to share this fall/winter, I'd love to get on a wait list.

    I have some bigdog crabapple trees, how old does a tree have to be to cut scions?

    A few years, depending on the tree size. You're generally cutting that year's growth in the fall/winter.

    I’ll send you a picture of the tree next time I’m at my place, you tell me if you think it will work.
