[NAFEX] What a rootstock cando

Hello,

How do you prune a tip bearing variety that does not seem to use spurs at
all?

I I have a number of Improved Snow apple trees on a number of rootstocks.
All have fruiting spurs.  The odd ball is grafted to a wild rootstock and on
only produce bloom at the tip. 

No idea how to prune it.

Thanks,
Tom

    When I bought adjacent property, it had a deceased apple with only 
rootstock growing.  So I grafted a Honey Crisp onto it from one of my trees.

My tree produces fruit on spurs but the grafted one produces on terminal 
ends of new growth.
