Owner's commentsThese grafts were made onto M9-interstock and the intention is to cut off the existing root-ball once the M9 has sprouted roots (they're planted deeply) to end up with true M9 dwarf trees.

We searched and searched for Cox's here in Japan, but couldn't find a supplier. What we did find was that the Nagano Agricultural University keeps a DNA database of varieties and COP was in the database. The university very kindly agreed to let us have a few cuttings and on the 7th of April this year I grafted about twenty onto M9-interstem rootstock, with a couple of extra going onto existing (dwarf) Kougyoku and Sansa trees for luck. By mid May we had bud burst. Fingers crossed!
