Normally this is not a problem.
How many hours of chilling time do you have in your orchard?

I think 9b is pretty far outside of its normal range, but i could be wrong. You might have a hard time.

That is the reason i asked, from what i have read the recommended zones are 4-8 or 4-9 so maybe it could be possible
