V3 Apple Rootstock

Kerr Apple Crab is a cross between Dolgo and Haralson that originated in Manitoba. This hardy variety is so tasty that it is often compared to Golden Delicious. Kerr Apples keep well and are good for fresh eating, cooking, and juicing. As an ornamental, this tree blooms in mid-May with clusters of white flowers born from pink buds.

Although the height of this tree is listed as 20ft, it can grow to just 6ft on dwarfing rootstock like V3.

The V3 or Vineland 3 Apple is a favorite of many farmers. This plant is an excellent dwarfing rootstock for grafting other apple species to. It is cold hardy and resistant to fire blight. This tree performs best with staking and regular watering.

This tree produces gorgeous white and pink blossoms in the spring. It is not typically grown for its fruit but can produce small red apples.

Expect an easy-to-pick height of 6 feet and a more efficient yield per square foot of space compared to standard rootstocks. Not recommended for planting in pots. Also known for its disease resistance.

There are anecdotal reports of dwarfing rootstock producing larger fruit and more fruit given the volume of the tree.
