Abstract

A rootstock trial of 'Starkspur Supreme Delicious' trees on 15 rootstocks was established in 1984 by the NC-140 regional cooperative project. Horticulturists who have worked with and managed this trial subjectively rated various horticultural characteristics of the scion and rootstocks of these trees in 1994. Characteristics related to branching, anchorage, pruning and training, and root suckering were among those rated. The potential of each rootstock for slender spindle or central leader type management was also rated.
