Apple Rootstocks in Zone 5
Was hoping you could help me out again. I'm going to be planting eight apple trees in my yard this year, and am confused about which rootstock to get. I'd like to see some fruiting in the second or third year, and want the final height to be no greater than 12'. I've read a lot about M9, M26, and Bud9, but wasn't sure about issues with fireblight, etc. What's everyone growing on in my neck of the woods (Connecticut) that might fit the bill?
