Root system development was studied in the cherry cvs Ranna Cherna Edra [Early Large Black], Napoleon and Hedelfingen grafted on mahaleb (Prunus mahaleb) 2X or wild cherry (P. avium) 1K rootstocks and planted in the nursery at 80 X 30 cm. All 3 cvs produced more vigorous top and root growth on mahaleb 2X. The bulk of the roots (70%) of both rootstocks was in the 0 to 20 cm soil layer. In the 21 to 40 cm layer there were more wild cherry roots, whereas in the 41 to 60 cm layer mahaleb roots predominated.
