I don’t know whence the observations or measurements have come, 
but I saw a rootstock comparison
        in which G202 was said to produce “smaller fruit size.”   For the 
reason you mention, I hope this is true, and of
        more than just statistical significance.  I suspect that if it were a 
practical difference, we would have heard more
        about it.
