Here's some info I had readily available on BA

Atlantic Food and Horticulture Research Centre

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.
