I recommend you bury the 109 a few inches.
I planted 10 at various depths about 10 years ago.
The ones that were planted the deepest are doing the best.
The ones where the 109 is above the ground are doing the worst.
When the 109 is above the ground there is a lot os suckering from 
the 111 and there is a lot of burring on the 109.
It does not seem to affect the fruiting but it makes maintenance of 
the bottom of the trees much more difficult.
Taking off the suckers is a continueing chore.
The burrs look bad but I don't think they hurt the tree.
I am not sure.
The top grafts of the trees are all different apples so maybe it is not 
a scientifically correct conclusion.
Good luck.
