Bud 9 (Budagovsky 9) [35-40%]--- This is a very hardy apple rootstock that is gaining in popularity. Produces a full dwarf tree (approx 35-40%% of standard). Precocious. Requires support--- staking or trellising. Reported to be resistant to collar rot, powdery mildew and apple scab. Very resistant to winter frost or damage. Originally reported to be susceptible to fire blight, but experiences in 2000 in Michigan have indicated that it seems to be quite tolerant and much less susceptible than most other Malling 9. clones. Does well in most soils, but irrigation is recommended in light soils. Very good availability of most varieties on Bud 9.
The Budagovsky series of apple rootstocks were developed in Russia (former Soviet Union) and are known for their winter hardiness. Most of them have reddish colored leaves which make it easier to distinguish them from the Malling rootstocks.
