Owner's comments

Dumelow's Seedling scions grafted onto MM111 rootstock. Of the many varieties I grafted, my Dumelow's Seedlings were the very last to sprout leaves (bud break occurred a full month after planting). After a year in the ground seem perfectly healthy. Decent growth after first season in the nursery; trees have grown from 3-inch scions to 2-foot whips. Grew an additional 2' in second year.
