I think we would all love follow-up reports on the eventual tree sizes.

I'm happy to report that the droves of m-26 interstem grafts I did on hapless
seedling whips growing around the property were successful and they are
definitely precocious- nearly half of them are showing pink and set to
flower, not bad for last years graft! The rootstock varied in size from 1/4"
to 3/8", and grew well despite no watering or mulch. I did both grafts
(interstem and variety) at the same time and had near 100% success. I kept
the interstem short so that bur knots are too bad. With the number of wild
seedling trees that I have to choose from, I don't think I'll ever plant an
apple tree again. -Devin
