I am going to be helping students graft apple trees, and would like
suggestions as to which rootstocks might work best. We're zone 6a.
The ideal rootstock would be amateur-friendly with a high % of takes, it
must be fireblight resistance, resistance to crown rot would be nice, and it
needs to be able handle some heavier soils.
Pluses would be size in the 30-40% range, and resistance to scab.
What are your thoughts about G11? Are there others I might consider? G16
and 30 sound interesting except for the virus sensitivity.
