M106 - Semi-dwarf rootstock. Usually produces a tree about 65-75% the
size of the same tree on seedling
rootstock. Provides good anchorage. Imparts early bearing fruit and is
easily propagated. Reported resistant
to woolly apple aphid. Requires irrigation. Tree spacing ranges from 10
x 18 ft to 6 x 12 ft.
M7a - Semi-dwarf rootstock. Usually produces a tree about 60% the size
of the same tree on seedling
rootstock. Performs well in irrigated replant situations, but tends to
sucker. Spacing is same as M106.

Be sure to stake the trees to give them support!
