Fruit tree variety from ANFIC
Penta cv. (Prunus Empyrean 2) stone fruit rootstock
ISF Rome Italy
Trees budded to Penta are well anchored, more vigorous and higher yielding than trees budded on peach seedling.
Good compatibility with almond and plum cvs tested.
Penta is the same size as GF677.
Resistant to Verticillium and Phytophthora resistant. Resistant to root-knot nematode.
Plant starts slow and trees look semi-dwarf for first four years.
Trees will become vigorous after four years (stronger than seedling).
The yield efficiency looks good at this time. This is looking very good on problem sites.
