I was thinking about how many G.41 rootstock to order and looked that their comparison chart. II noticed some changes in the Geneva rootstock chart. http://www.ctl.cornell.edu/plants/GENEVA-Apple-Rootstocks-Comparison-Chart.pdf
Since the version I had saved on my harddrive -
G.65 and G.11 were dropped and G.213 and G.814 were added. G.65 has disappeared so no surprise about it. G.11 is still pretty common so I am surprised it was dropped from the chart. G11 isn’t replant tolerant but I do not think I’ve read of virus issues with it. Cummins shows about 6000 G.11 for sale and another 2000 trees on G.11. I wonder why it got removed from the chart instead of G.16 which has its share of problems.
New line added for virus sensitivity.
Slight adjustments the tree size class, G.890 changed from M7 to M7/MM106, G.969 reduced from M7/MM106 to M7, and G.222 changed from M26/M7 to M26…
G222 noted for more suckering now. I pulled out some suckers from my G222 trees this summer. Each looked like it had a root attached so I clipped the leaves and stuck them in a flower pot on the back patio. Looks like they are hanging on and might be t-buddable next summer.
