A semi-dwarfing rootstock out of the Geneva Apple Rootstock Breeding Program. It is cold hardy and is a cross between a dwarfing Ottawa 3 Rootstock and a semi-dwarfing Robusta 5 rootstock.

Good for homeowners wanting a freestanding tree. Rootstocks are about 18" long and are ¼" in caliper. Sold in packs of 5, 10 and 25.

Final Height: 70-75% of Standard; ~14-17'

Resistances: Fireblight, Crown Rot, and Wooly Apple Aphid

Suckering: Few

Support Needed: Excellent test rootstock for those wanting a freestanding tree.

Precocity: Intermediate
