Here's some info I had readily available on BA

Beautiful Arcade Seedlings of this old Russian cultivar are still produced 
at the seed orchard in Kentville. The seedlings have a fibrous root system 
which generally produce trees smaller than most other seedlings. They have 
performed especially well with McIntosh and Cortland. This stock is reliable 
for a wide range of soil conditions. Triploids such as Gravenstein and King 
on this stock are usually slow to come into production and fail to sustain a 
high level of productivity.
