Owner's comments

Purchased 40 Antonovka bareroot rootstocks from FEDCO in Maine. Used most as rootstocks, but set a few aside to grow out. Impressive growth; after one season in the nursery, trees have grown from 1 to 5 feet. Second year was extremely hot and dry. Limited growth on all trees, many new branches.
