Melrose apple trees on MM 106, M 26, M 9 rootstocks were planted in autumn
1986. There were no differences in the vigour of trees on different
rootstocks. Only the number of shoots and height of trees were lower on M
9 than on MM 106 and M 26 rootstocks. Fruiting began in 1989 but the crop
was very small. No significant differences in cumulative yield and crop
efficiency were found.
