Cool. Last winter I searched for a commercial source for 'Beautiful Arcade', but didn't find one. Can listers post a source if found, please/thanks?

Here's some info I had readily available on BA

Atlantic Food and Horticulture Research Centre

Beautiful Arcade Seedlings of this old Russian cultivar are still produced at the seed orchard in Kentville. The seedlings have a fibrous root system which generally produce trees smaller than most other seedlings. They have performed especially well with McIntosh and Cortland. This stock is reliable for a wide range of soil conditions. Triploids such as Gravenstein and King on this stock are usually slow to come into production and fail to sustain a high level of productivity.
