A friend of mine has a weak growing rootstock named: Renus 2 PP11,233 it’s a dwarfing rootstock that is compatible with Prunus varieties such as peach, nectarine, and apricot, producing dwarf trees with no significant reduction in fruit size, early yield, high yield efficiency, uniform fruit size, high frost hardiness, no suckering, and good soil adaptation.
I have been informed this was a seedling of western sand cherry (c. pumila var. besseyi)
It grows wild in the central states of the US.
Just curious, is there anyone of you familiar with this stone fruit rootstock, or familiar with Sand Sherry?
Interesting read…i think he should have tried a few varieties just to see if it wasn’t just the incompatibility with Elberta…maybe RedHaven would have worked better. Maybe an interstem of something would help.
