P.22 Rootstock

$3.50

P.22 produces very dwarf trees (25-30% of standard) similar to those of M.27. Moreover, these trees have high resistance to crown and root rots. However they are moderately susceptible to fire blight and very susceptible to woolly apple aphid. Although P.22 is very precocious and has higher yield efficiency than M.9, it does requires support. Lastly, the trees have good winter hardiness.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.

A rootstock primarily controls a tree's size and how early it bears fruit. Learn more about our specific rootstocks.
