Jukka, do you have any knowldge of Krikon Damson which I understand 
originated in Sweden?

I'm interested especially in information on its fruit quality and 
productivity especially compared to the standard Shropshire Damson, and 
in any information on its use as a rootstock.

 From tests in Minnesota published about 1950, and from experience of 
the Agriculture Canada station at Morden, Manitoba, Krikon Damson is 
apparently a little more cold-hardy than our hardiest generally known 
Prunus domesticas, Stanley and Mount Royal.

I would be interested in information about any other Prunus insititia of 
coldhardiness comparable to Krikon Damson that are used as rootocks for 
stone fruits in Sweden or Finland, or for that matter in Russia.
