Owner's comments

Part of a recent series I've propagated on Geneva 30 rootstock. Recently proven for commercial production as superior to the M7 series in most US climate zones. Key element of it's advantage is high fireblight (FB) resistance. The scion may be killed by FB, but the stock will likely survive.
