Rootstocks--

Some years ago I acquired some 'Beautiful Arcade', and they have mostly performed
nicely.  I've also used Bud.118, but so far I must admit they mostly make me wish I
had more Beautiful Arcade.  Except, Bud.118 seems to be more precocious.

Also, I agree with other post: Antanovka has worked well, and I recently bought some
MM111 when a small amount became available.


Apple list-- 

Do you have enough info to work with, from that other post?
