Malus Budagovsky 9 Rootstock

(Apple) [M8 x Red Standard (Krasnij Standart)] Also called Red-leafed Paradise or Bud 9. Michurinsk College of Ag, Michurin, Russia, 1946.

Dwarfing rootstock, produces a tree about a quarter the size of a standard tree. Highly productive and precocious (fruits at a young age) with large fruit size. Very hardy though not as hardy as Antonovka.

In most locations, requires weeding, mulching, staking and irrigation. Space trees 5-10' apart. Note that reddish cambium does not scrape green like other rootstocks. Some resistance to fireblight. Z4.

We have two shipping options for rootstock:

Choose A for our regular late-March to early-May shipping window (to receive rootstock with other plants, if ordered).
Choose B for mid-March (to receive rootstock with scionwood, if ordered).

Note: scionwood ships only in mid-March. If you order scionwood, and then select late-March to early-May shipping for your rootstock, they will be shipped at different times.
