Dwarfing rootstock, produces a tree about a quarter the size of a standard tree. Highly productive and precocious (fruits at a young age) with large fruit size. Very hardy though not as hardy as Antonovka.
In most locations, requires mulching, staking and irrigation. Space trees 5-10' apart. Note that reddish cambium does not scrape green like other rootstocks. Some resistance to fireblight. Z4.
We have two shipping options for rootstock:
Choose A for our regular late-March to early-May shipping window (to receive rootstock with other plants, if ordered).
Choose B for mid-March (to receive rootstock with scionwood, if ordered).
Note: scionwood ships only in mid-March. If you order scionwood, and then select late-March to early-May shipping for your rootstock, they will be shipped at different times.
We do our best to provide ¼" caliper stock. Because of factors beyond our control (such as weather!) stock may be 3⁄16–3⁄8".
