Norkent Apple
V3 Apple Rootstock

Norkent Apple produces fruit that is desirable for fresh eating. The apples most closely resemble Golden Delicious in appearance and taste. Our stock is grafted onto V3 or Siberian Crab rootstock for better planting. If you want a great prairie hardy apple for eating, cooking, juicing or making cider, this is the variety for you.

Note: We do not ship grafted apples to BC due to regulatory restrictions from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

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.
