One of the most desirable and exclusive rootstocks for Almonds, Peaches and Nectarines

We are pleased to be able to add the latest rootstocks from leading breeder, Burchell, and we're excited to offer one of the most desirable and exclusive rootstocks for Almonds, Peaches and Nectarines in the shape of Cornerstone®.

Later this year, we look forward to adding more of the latest stone fruit varieties from Burchell, with Nectarine and Peach varieties being a key part of the additions.

Key Features of Cornerstone® Include:

  • Hybrid rootstock with excellent anchorage
  • Consistently one of the highest producers
  • Drought tolerant
  • Most tolerant to high salt soils

Cornerstone® is a deep rooting red leaf rootstock. It has better phytopthora resistance than Garnem and it is more drought tolerant than Nemaguard. 

Cornerstone® is tolerant of pH soil and is resistant to iron induced chlorosis. 

Cornerstone® will tolerate heavier soils and is more resistant to crown gall than most almond x peach hybrids.

Cornerstone® has shown to be the most salt tolerant rootstock in a recent study conducted by the university of California.
