Mongolian Cherry
V3 Apple Rootstock

Mongolian Cherry is a hardy shrub that is often grown as an ornamental. This plant makes an attractive flowering hedgerow that requires little maintenance. The dark red cherries are tart and desirable for baking, wine-making, and canning. This shrub is popular with wildlife.

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.
