Strong growing rootstock for very dry sites
wild form Prunus cerasifera
Strong growing rootstock. Especially suitable for high yielding and lesser growing varieties because of its lower fertility. Often used for high-stemmed trees in meadow orchards due to its strong growth rate.
3 - 4 m x 4 - 6 m
High adaptability to dry sites with sandy soils for example. Winter frost damage on the roots is possible when grown in very cold sites.
