I have been trying to research online the techniques needed to dwarf a tree and why those steps are necessary. The question I have is: Does the age of the rootstock of a dwarf tree decide how long it will take to produce fruit, or is it the budding scion that decides at what age it will give fruit? For example, if I grow a rootstock from seed that is about 6 months old and graft a scion that has buds (and will produce fruit that year), will the young tree produce fruit, or does it all depend on the age of the rootstock?
