G.30 Rootstock Final Size
Hi apple growers.
I am growing a Jonamac tree on G.30 and the height of the tree is getting up there.
My soil is pretty sandy, and I compost around the tree.
I was expecting my soild to be on the poor side of the fence but maybe im mistaken.
I was under the impression that G.30 with an average vigor scion would grow to about 12-14 feet.
Right now, this tree is in its 3rd season and its eclipsed 11 feet tall this month, only a couple of fruits on it, its still rather thin because this is its first full sun year due to taking trees out June of last year, but its thickening up nicely now.
For you apple growers out there, if you have a G.30 tree, what height did it reach before it topped out?
Im not complaining about the size at all, in fact im pleasantly surprised, because I thought it would be runted a bit due to the sandy soil, but it seems to really thrive here so far.
