I though I might have lost the Giant Russian. Put it on G890 and G202 last spring. The 202 failed after initially putting out a leaf or two. The G890 seemed in doubt.
But, this year, the leader and two side buds have over 6 inches new growth…so we should be good to go. And next year I’ll have extra scion wood to put on a ‘frankentree’ or something.
I didn’t buy or trade for any extra red fleshed this spring…unless a KAZ 96 3-15 is red fleshed. But have grafted 99 apple grafts this spring, and somewhere between 78 and 96 will be successful…3 have died, 78 have made it, others are pending.
