All fruit trees are grafted onto rootstocks. The rootstocks determine eventual tree size.
Bigger trees are more robust & produce more fruit, but take up more space.
Always choose a bigger rootstock if you need extra anchorage or your soil is in poor (very wet, dry or rocky). Small trees cannot compete with grass and weeds.
Select your rootstock by using the paypal button corresponding to the eventual size of tree you desire. You will have the option to select the number of trees you wish to order on the Paypal page.
