P.2 Rootstock


The P.2 rootstock is a dwarf variety, producing trees at 25% the size of standard ones, with the efficiency of M.9 rootstock, and is used as an interstem for creating hardy, free-standing trees. It’s known for its early fruiting, starting in the third year, and offers strong resistance to several diseases like collar rot, cankers, silver leaf, and crown gull, while being slightly susceptible to scab and powdery mildew.
