Definizione

The piece of the fruiting vine that is grafted on to the quite separate rootstock. 1

Nota

Grafting success is highly dependant upon the quality and size of the scion wood. Scion should be collected only from healthy plants in a strong section of the vineyard, exhibiting no stress or disease problems. [...] Scion should be collected during the winter months, preferably in January or February. 2

Contesto

Larger caliper scion is necessary for field grafting than that typically used for bench grafting. 3
