Burrknot development was evaluated on 10-year-old 'Gala' scions growing in North Carolina and Virginia on eight dwarfing rootstocks. The effect of rootstock on burrknot development was similar for both locations. In general, trees on P.1 and O.3 produced the most burrknots and trees on M.27 produced the fewest burrknots. The number of burrknots per tree was not related to trunk cross-sectional area (TCA), but burrknot density (burrknots/TCA) was highest for O.3 and lowest for M.27.
