BUD 9 Dwarf Apple Rootstock

Malus rootstock 'Budagovsky 9 clonal rootstock'

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.

Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Apples are probably the easiest trees to propagate. Grandpa recommends "chip" budding, which is easy to learn and highly successful. Since we cannot ship these early enough in the season, we do not recommend "bench grafting". You usually can start chip budding when your scionwood is mature and buds are developed and readily and easily cut and removed from your scion stick. Usually by August in most areas.

A Little History about BUD 9 Dwarf Apple Rootstock

The Budagovsky series of apple rootstocks were developed in Poland 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.
