You might be thinking of G16 (the other smaller one).  I just spoke  
with Jim Cummins, to ask if the Ashmeads on M7 he sold me last year  
would have any viruses that would be harmful to the G30 rootstock,  
and he said not to worry about it - as far as he can tell, the only  
Geneva rootstock with virus sensitivity is G16 - and that one is  
extremely sensitive to a number of latent viruses.  In fact, he said  
go ahead and graft from my multi-tree if I want to, he thinks the  
only problem is that it's a little too late in the season.

I have seen some comments on the internet about virus issues with  
G30, but Jim Cummins is the expert, and people sometimes get  
confused.  So I think I'll give it a try.
