Apple Rootstock Info: P.2

Characteristic Detail Description
Rootstock P.2

Resulted from a cross of M.9 x Common Antonovka and released by the Research Institute of Poland in Skierniewice, Poland. This is a productive, cold hardy, dwarfing rootstock slightly more dwarfing than M.9 NAKBT-337. It is susceptible to fire blight, and wooly apple aphid, but fairly resistant to crown and root rots. It produces few root suckers and burr knots similar to M.9. In NC-140 trials trees survive; depaending on location tree size was similar

Apple Rootstock Info: P.18

Characteristic Detail Description
Rootstock P.18

Resulted from a cross of M.4 x Common Antonovka and released by the Research Institute of Poland  in Skierniewice, Poland. This is a nondwarfing rootstock with vigor similar to seedling. It has not been tested widely in North America, but based on a trial in Illinois P.18 was less precocious and had lower yield efficiency than MM.111. Inoculation tests in California indicate it is moderately resistant to phytophthora. It is susceptible to wooly apple aphid,

Apple Rootstock Info: P.22

Characteristic Detail Description
Rootstock P.22

Resulted from a cross of M.9 x Common Antonovka and released Research Institute of Poland  in Skierniewice, Poland. This is a very dwarfing rootstock, producing trees similar in size to M.27. Trees have good winter hardiness, and produce few burr knots and rootsuckers. It is moderately susceptible to fire blight and very susceptible to woolly apple aphid, and has good resistance to crown and root rots. P.22 is very precocious, has higher yield efficiency than
