m106 for scion grafting
I am going to purchase an apple tree from a local Agway nursery. The trees come from Hollybrook Orchard and I have learned that their trees are on m 106 rootstock.
The reason I am getting this tree is to graft scion on to it. I ordered to many varieties to put on my existing tree. I realize the root stock determines most of the height but will the apple variety also have an impact on the overall size of the tree? I would like to have less summer pruning. The varieties they have are Cortland, Granny Smith and red Delicious. There are a few other locations I can visit. Is there a variety/trunk that would be best suited for grafting?
