Looking to plant a honeycrisp near Denver 6a (I’d consider it 5) and could use some recommendations on root stocks that work well here. I had a young honeycrisp at my last house, and the fruit it bore was delicious. No idea on the root stock.
In addition to the weather and late cold snaps, fireblight is one of our bigger challenges. Drought tolerance is also desired.
I am thinking of a semi-dwarf for manageability and longeity, though if there are dwarfs that sustain and produce well in these conditions, I’d be all ears.
Thanks in advance!
