[NAFEX] St. Julian rootstock experience?

If no-one has experience with Hanska plum, a description of it should be in a South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station bulletin describing the cultivars developed by Dr. N. E. Hansen.  I don't remember the exact title, but I contributed a copy to the NAFEX library several years ago.

As far as a source of Hanska is concerned (http://www.growit.com/Plants/Growers/2855.htm ), it is being propagated by Jeff Tuley Farms, a wholesale nursery, in Murchison, TX (phone 800/950-7115, Web site at http://www.jefftuleyfarms.com/ ).

You might also correspond with the SDSU Experiment Station to see whether they have maintained this cultivar in their collection. -- Sam Brungardt, St. Paul, MN (USDA zone 4b)

Hanska sounds interesting.  I wonder how it would do in Seattle.  I have
hybrid plum-apricot (Pluot) trees in two different locations in town.  These
trees are the first to bloom in my collection.  In one location I always get
a few fruits.  In the other location I never get fruit.  If they bloomed a
little later I think these plum-apricot trees would do better.  If you have
experience with Hanska, does it bllom earlier or later relative to plums?

Also I'm looking for someone with some Hanska scionwood.  I checked the
ARS-GRIN government collection, and Hanska is not listed.

Laura:
The Professor Hansen-developed american-hybrid plum variety "Hanska" is I
hear supposed to taste
somewhat like an Apricot.   Can anyone who has grown "Hanska" confirm that?

"Hanska" is supposed to be one of the heavier bearing american-hybrid plum
varieties, according to
some growers I have talked with.  "Hanska" is not in my collection.
