Rubinette is still under patent; you'll have to buy the whole tree.

Yeah, the patent holder is Promo-Fruit; I couldn't find the patent number but the trademark was filed at the same time and expires in 2014

I gave up my license last year as I didn't graft enough to justify the minimum payment.

Its plant patent 6588, from 1987 - Rafzubin is the name on the patent. That means it has expired several years ago. Graft away!

If you can't find scions Rob drop me a line.


Here is a link that might be useful: Rafzubin patent
