Resulted from a cross between M.27 and Robusta 5 and introduced by the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, Geneva, NY. Geneva® 41 and has been tested as CG 3041 and is a full dwarf, similar in size to M.9 NAKBT337. It is highly resistant to fire blight and phytophthora and in initial tests; it appears to be tolerant of replant disease. It is being tested in the 2003 NC-140 trial at 12 locations with ‘Golden Delicious’ as the scion cultivar. After five years, it produces trees similar in size to M.9, but it has higher yield efficiency and produces few root suckers.
