Very popular semi-dwarf rootstock produces a tree about 65-80% of standard. Space trees 15-20' apart. No staking necessary. Fruits at a slightly younger age than standards.
Well anchored and adaptable to a wide range of soils. Resistant to woolly aphid. Prone to suckering. Not nearly as long-lived as standards. Hardy to Z4, maybe Z3.
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".
