HI all,

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.
