Apple Scion Regraft - Healthy or not?
I just noticed this yesterday, and im not sure what to think of it.
Scion: Calville Blanc d'Hiver
This is a June regraft, I had to regraft this branch because the previous scions on it didnt take.
On one scion, the fuzzy part of the bud husk, its colored orange, on the other scion its white, like silver tips.
Didnt notice this yesterday on the tree, we received a burst of rain getting the tree wet.
I took the loose husks off to examine the undergrowth, it appears to be orange as well.
Is this indicative of fireblight, or just the tree pushing sap and the sap discoloring the husk? The sap color of the tree is identical to this.
I dont recall seeing this on the other grafts, but I didnt pay that close attention.
Anything to be concerned about?
Growth is green.
I hope its not dead, its been moving quite a bit.
