We had some breakage when planting trees on g41 as well, for several different 
scion varieties. However, after the first year on a highwire trellis with poles 
the graft unions have held up fine.  I left a few g.41 rootstocks to grow in 
our cider block and they produced lots of flowers in the third leaf year. They 
are a compact crab type tree, and should be good for pollen…

While handling/planting G41/Honeycrisp a number of trees broke at union. We 
decide to plant rootstock with intent of returning to graft craps or other var 
for pollination. Can anyone tell me if we simply allow G41 to grow will we see 
flowering adequate for pollination?
