A cross between Northern Spy and M.793, produced by the John Innes Horticultural Institute, that produces a tree that is larger than MM.106 and about 75% of seedling size. MM.111 is valuable due to its adaptability to dry sandy soils. Suckering is low, and its resistance to Wooly Aphids is good. Trees on MM.111 will not require staking as the anchorage is very good.
MM.111 is a good rootstock for poor soils and dry areas where extra vigor is required for better cropping. An excellent rootstock for spur bearing varieties. MM.111 has been successful when used for replant situations in Victoria.
Our retail range of rootstocks have been grown for an extra year inground to produce a large plant suitable for a variety of grafting techniques.
