  Is it possible to take a scion from an apple tree, graft it to rootstock and never see a blossom?


  The first scion I ever collected, I grafted to a wild dwarf rootstock in 1999 and it has never produced a single blossom.  The tree is doing well, is a good size and other trees I have grafted after it have blossomed and had fruit.  


  This makes me wonder.  If you took a scion from a water sprout, would you ever get apples?  I do not remember now what I took for a scion then, I was a newbie.


  Looking at the tree this spring for nice fat buds that might contain flowers, and I see none (again).


  Any thoughts?
