Thank you for the response.
Does anyone know where I can find a link to a picture of the fruit of M27? The reason I ask is I recently rediscovered a planting I made some 8 years ago of some 39 varieties of apples on M27. The rabbits had a feast and gnawed everything in site, which naturally regrew, but the issue becomes is it the scion or the rootstock that regrew. but I can tell some stuff must have survived as the bloom rates a radically different on several (they are probably Northern Spy based on their location and the fact they re still dormant and I grafted several NS).
It is sort of mystery as to what survived. But an intriguing one as I have a grid of what I planted only need to identify a few varieties in order to apply it. OF course knowing what the rootstock fruit looks like will greatly simplify the task.
One intersting thing is M27 must root a lot easier than I thought, as many of the bush/trees were blown over and rooted in several places and the rootstock grew laterally underground.

All apple rootstocks I know of will produce fruit, but it is
terrible tasting. You can let yours
grow to satisfy your curiosity. Certain rootstocks, like Quince
will give an edible fruit, but
your M27 won't.
