many varieties, we always lose an inordinate number of trees to breakage at the time of digging. The 
hope has been that these unions would strengthen over time, which does seem to happen in the case of 
many varieties. But all in all I think we are ready to abandon the Krymsk 1 for apricots (and peach, 
but not plum), in spite of the cold hardiness and the dwarfing qualities. For the spring 2014 season 
we are returning to the use of Manchurian"
