[nafex] Columnar apples

  I received some standard apple scions about 7 yrs or so ago. I could go 
look at the tag for date. One was a MacSpur. I grafted it to a multiple 
tree. It is growing, and it has never gotten more than 6 inches approx. in 
diameter. Roger picked it out first time he seen it. This was much before 
they were touting columer trees. 2 years ago I grafted it to a bud 9 and put 
in a large pot. It is staying tight to the main stem, and this year both are 
in blossom. The one in the multitree is only about 4 to 5 feet high. Don't 
think there is a spur on there that is longer than 4 or 5 inches. I have yet 
to check with Roger Miller to see if he had gotten a take from my start. It 
is tight close spurs and to me seems to be dwarfish.
