Apple Rootstocks

Dwarf

Bud 9 (Budagovsky 9)

A low vigor rootstock producing a tree similar to, or slightly smaller than, M9-337 in size. Bud 9 is more winter hardy and less susceptible to fire blight than M9. It is very resistant to collar rot and moderately resistant to apple scab and powdery mildew. This rootstock requires support and supplemental irrigation is recommended particularly on lighter soils.

Geneva® 11 (M26xRobusta 5)

Geneva®11 is similar to, or slightly less vigorous than, M9-337 in size. It is moderately resistant to fire blight and woolly apple aphid but not tolerant to replant disease. Geneva®11 is resistant to collar rot, is very winter hardy, and has a high yield efficiency and large fruit size. This rootstock requires support and irrigation is recommended.

M9-337 (M-9 T337)

Resistant to collar rot and adaptable to a wide range of soils, the exception being light, sandy soils, M9-337 induces early cropping with large fruit size. A widely-planted rootstock in high-density orchards. This rootstock requires support and supplemental irrigation is recommended particularly on lighter soils.

Geneva®41 (M 27xRobusta 5)

Produces a tree similar to or slightly larger in size to M9-337. Geneva® 41 is immune to fire blight, crown rot and wooly apple aphid. Geneva®41 is very cold hardy and precocious. It is good rootstock to consider for replant sites. This rootstock requires support.

EMLA 9

A virus-free clone of M9, EMLA 9, like other M9 clones, induces early cropping with large fruit size. It is resistant to collar rot and adaptable to a wide range of soil conditions, though not light, sandy soils. Slightly more vigorous than M9, this rootstock requires support and irrigation is recommended.

M9-NIC 29 (RN 29)

A more vigorous clone of M9, this rootstock produces a less brittle root system than other M9 clones. Very precocious, M9-NIC 29 promotes large fruit size and early cropping. This rootstock requires support and supplemental irrigation is recommended.

M9-Pajam 2 (Cepiland)

Slightly more vigorous and productive than M9-337, M9-Pajam 2 is precocious and promotes large fruit size. This rootstock requires support and supplemental irrigation is recommended.

Geneva®214

Recently released by Cornell University, Geneva®214 is resistant to fire blight, crown rot and wooly apple aphid. It is highly yield efficient and productive, with efficiency equal to or greater than M9. Size is similar to, or slightly smaller than, M26. This rootstock requires support and supplemental irrigation is recommended.

Geneva®935 (Ottawa 3xRobusta 5)

Highly resistant to fire blight and collar rot, Geneva®935 is similar in size to M26 with efficiency similar to M9. It is very cold hardy and tolerant to replant disease, but susceptible to wooly apple aphid. Staking is recommended along with supplemental irrigation.

M9/EMLA 111 Interstem

Produces a tree similar to EMLA 26 in size. The advantage of this rootstock is that EMLA 111 provides excellent anchorage, while the M9 interstem creates a smaller, more compact tree. Suckering can be a problem with some interstem trees.

EMLA 26

A virus-indexed clone of Malling 26, EMLA 26 is more vigorous than EMLA 9, but less vigorous than EMLA 7. It produces larger fruit than EMLA 7 and is more precocious. EMLA 26 is susceptible to collar rot and should not be planted on wet or infected soils. It is also susceptible to fire blight. Staking and supplemental irrigation are recommended.

Geneva®202

Similar in size to M26, Geneva®202 is precocious and productive. It is resistant to firelight, collar rot and wooly apple aphid. It is tolerant to replant disease. Staking and irrigation are recommended.

Semi Dwarf

EMLA 7

A virus-indexed clone of M7a. EMLA 7, about 60% the size of trees on seedling, is very winter hardy. Anchorage is fair; however, it does not perform well on light sandy soils. It is fire blight resistant and moderately resistant to collar rot, though suckering can be a problem. It should have support for certain varieties like Red Delicious, Rome and Fuji.

Geneva®210

A replacement for Geneva®30 in the M7 size category with a yield efficiency similar to M9. Geneva®210 is tolerant to apple replant disease and resistant to fire blight, collar rot and wooly apple aphid. It is well anchored and does not require staking.

Geneva®890

A semi-dwarfing rootstock 50-60% the size of a seedling (similar to M7, but slightly less vigorous in Western states). It is more precocious than M7 and M106. G.890 is tolerant to replant disease, and resistant to fire blight, crown rot, and wooly apple aphid. It is a winter hardy rootstock with low suckering.

EMLA 106 (Northern Spy x Malling 1)

Moderate vigor, about 70% the size of trees on seedling, EMLA 106 is heavy cropping and resistant to wooly apple aphid. It is adaptable to a wide range of soils; however, it is susceptible to collar rot and should not be planted on heavy soils that are not well drained. Well anchored.

EMLA 111

Produces a tree approximately 75% the size of trees on seedling. It is well anchored and resistant to wooly apple aphid and collar rot. Adaptable to a wide range of soils.

Bud 118 (Budagovsky 118)

Very winter hardy, Bud 118 produces a well-anchored tree similar in size to EMLA 111 or larger. It is resistant to collar rot, but slightly susceptible to crown gall and powdery mildew. Recommended for dry, sandy sites.

Cherry Rootstocks

Dwarf

Gisela 3

The most dwarfing in the Gisela series of rootstocks, it is about 30-35% of Mazzard at maturity. It is widely adapted to soil types and very precocious. This rootstock promotes vigorous growth the first year or two and then slows once fruiting starts. Great for growing under tunnels and super-high density plantings.

Gisela 5

45% to 50% the size of Mazzard, Gisela 5 is very precocious with good winter hardiness. Gisela 5 must have good fertile soils and supplemental irrigation. Excellent for low-productive varieties. Well suited for pedestrian orchards and under tunnels as well as super high density plantings. Anchorage is adequate.

Gisela 6

The most widely planted dwarfing cherry rootstock in the US. In the eastern US, it produces a tree approximately 60% the size of Mazzard. In the western US, 70% to 90% of Mazzard, though easily managed. A precocious and productive rootstock, it is winter hardy and adapted to a wide range of soil types. Fair anchorage.

Gisela 12

Under eastern growing conditions, Gisela 12 produces a tree approximately 55% to 60% of Mazzard. Like Gisela 6, trees are somewhat larger under western conditions. Actual tree vigor and size can be variable depending upon cultivar vigor. Gisela 12 is very productive and precocious and is adapted to a wide range of soils as well as hotter climates. Productive varieties, such as Sweetheart, perform well on this rootstock. Good anchorage.

Krymsk 5

Similar in size to Gisela 6, though somewhat less precocious, Krymsk 5 is adapted to a wide range of soil types. Trees are well anchored and winter hardy with low to moderate suckering. Krymsk 5 is sensitive to prune dwarf virus and necrotic ring spot virus.

Krymsk 6

Tree size is 65% to 70% of Mazzard with low to moderate suckering. Krymsk 6 is winter hardy and adapted to a wide range of soil types. Like Krymsk 5, it is sensitive to prune dwarf virus and necrotic ring spot virus.

Mahaleb

Producing a tree size approximately 90% of Mazzard, Mahaleb is best suited to light, sandy soils and does poorly in heavy soils. Mahaleb is incompatible with some sweet cherry cultivars. Excellent anchorage.

Maxma 14

More productive than Mazzard, Maxma 14 is adapted to a wide range of soils and has good anchorage. It is also resistant to iron-induced chlorosis caused by calcareous soils. Similar in size to Mazzard.

Mazzard

More tolerant of heavy soils than Mahaleb, Mazzard should not be planted on wet or poorly-drained soils. A vigorous, standard-size tree, Mazzard is well anchored and has not had the compatibility issues of Mahaleb. It is susceptible to crown gall and bacterial canker with moderate resistance to phytophthora.

MXM 60

More productive than Mazzard and similar in vigor, MXM 60 is compatible with both sweet and tart cherry varieties. A hybrid of Mazzard and Mahaleb, it is compatible with a wide range of soils. MXM 60 is cold hardy, drought tolerant and has excellent anchorage. It has moderate resistance to phytophthora and crown gall and has shown some resistance to bacterial canker.

Colt

Sensitive to droughty soils and cold winter temperatures, Colt is a low productive rootstock similar in size to Mazzard. It has shown resistance to bacterial canker and phytophthora but is susceptible to crown gall. It is resistant to cherry stem pitting.
