I was going to write to Just Jim, since this is a reply to a message 
that is 3 weeks old. Changed my mind...
I just wanted to mention my experience with Chenango Strawberry Apple. 
(note the spelling difference) I only have 4 apple trees but 3 of them 
have multiple grafts giving me at least a dozen different cultivars. The 
Chenango Strawberry is the only one that froze off. Jim, my climate is 
probably similar to yours with most winters getting to -30 to -35 
degrees. My grafted branch survived long enough to produce 3 apples 
(beautiful things) but 2 winters ago, it froze back part way. Last 
winter we had a single night of -34 and last spring that branch was dead 
right back to the graft.
I'm not suggesting that you don't try it but do keep in mind that it 
could lack enough hardiness for your location.
