mIEKAL,the way I read what they wrote is that they are abandoning the Krymsk 1 in spite of its dwarfing qualities.

funny, I just wrote them to see if they have an Krymsk 1 for sale�  but are they saying they'll use Manchurian apricot for peach rootstock?  My manchurians are 15-20 feet high and the opposite of dwarfing..

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"
