Graft holder

Dundee

Originally from Oregon (USA) by the University of Corvallis (USOR 15-71). It is a hybrid of Coryluscolurna x Corylusavellana which presents a low production of suckers. It has high vigor and a good grafting affinity with the vast majority of varieties. Used as a rootstock, it improves the vigor of the varieties, as well as the production of their fruits, both in size and weight. Its rind is clear and quite soft. It has some susceptibility to the fungus Annisogrammaanomala that causes the disease Eastern filbertblight (EFB).

Newberg

It was obtained in Oregon by the University of Corvalis (USOR 7-71), by the cross between Coryluscolurna x Corylusavellana presenting the peculiarity of offering a smaller number of regrowths, a characteristic inherited from Coryluscolurna. The trees grafted in Newberg offer great vigor and high productivity. It has a great sensitivity to the eastern hazelnut disease.
