Bud 9 Rootstock


The Bud 9 rootstock or Budagovsky 9 rootstock, greatly dwarfs apple trees to 25-30% of standard size, making it a prime choice for dense planting in cold climates due to its exceptional hardiness and resistance to collar rot. While it supports a wide range of apple varieties, it requires staking or trellising due to its compact stature.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.
