Estimated tree vigor for fruit varieties

Hi everyone, there is great information on relative apple variety vigor by HOS/ posted by Scott. Would be nice to compile similar lists for pears, plums etc to aid in creating balanced multigraft trees…if anyone can help out or has a information source list below


if been looking for the same thing. No luck so far.

I usually just make notes when reading variety descriptions. If no high or low vigor is noted i assume medium.

So far from what if seen. Apples have quite a huge range in vigor between cultivars. EU Pears a little less. And plums less than pears.
