Univeristy of Vermont Pomologist Joseph Costante poses next to a dwarf apple tree on M.9 rootstock during an International Dwarf Fruit Tree Association Summer Tour to western New York in 1991. Dr. Costante claims he helped dwarf fruit tree pioneer Bob Carlson plant some of the first commercial M.9 apple plantings in the U.S. during the mid-70's in western New York.

But would you buy a used car from him???
