    1103P rootstock provides high scion vigor and is tolerant of high alkalinity (high pH soils), high salinity (salt content), and cotton root rot (generally an issue in high pH soils). It is poor at taking up potassium fr...
  • Valiant
    Valiant is extremely winter hardy and produces small, compact clusters of small berries that ripen reliably. It is used for juice and jelly where other varieties are not hardy enough to be grown.
