Colt rootstock still on patent?

Is colt rootstock still on patent?

I'm asking this question because I'm planning graft it onto my proprietary Krauter vesuvius myrobalan plum x mariposa plum hybrid---I want to use it as an inter-stem for my bing cherry.

If it still on patent, I will not graft it.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Colt patent was issued in the 70s, developed by the Malling station in England. It's patent has long expired. PP#4059
