Malus M111 Rootstock


Malus M111 Rootstock

(Apple) [Northern Spy x Merton 793 (Northern Spy x East Malling11)] Collaborative intro of East Malling Research Stn and the John Innes Institute, Merton, England, about 1950. Technically named MM111, the MM refers to Malling and Merton.

Very popular semi-dwarf rootstock produces a tree about 65-80% of standard. Space trees 15-20' apart. No staking necessary. Fruits at a slightly younger age than standards.

Well anchored and adaptable to a wide range of soils. Resistant to woolly aphid. Not nearly as long-lived as standards. Hardy to Z4, maybe Z3.

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.
