SoCal Cherry Rootstock Question
I am planning my bareroot purchases and wondered if anyone had experience with two of the rootstocks
Z-Dwarf (the newly renamed most dwarfing rootstock)
Is Z-Dwarf as precocious as Colt? What about fruit set?
I am hoping for double duty out of a pair of cherry trees, fruit and some shade. They will be planted on the lower side of a retaining wall about 4 feet lower than the house. Reading that colt can be 20-30 feet tall, that is taller than I want, but 12 feet on Z-Dwarf might be a tad low.
