What are the trees (themselves)? Citation, Lovell, Krymsk, etc. Apples, peaches, plums? Would love to know. Mrs. G

RE: Rootstock Question

Citation is a complex hybrid of various stone fruit bred by Zaiger.

Lovell is a seedling peach, ie grown from seeds of Lovell peach.

Krymsk is probably a hybrid of various stone fruit that was bred in Russia.

University of California has a lot of rootstock trials that you can look through...
