Pyrodwarf produces a mature tree with a height between 4m - 5m, and fruit production should start at the age of 2-4 years.
No staking is required once the tree is established.
Trees grafted on Pyrodwarf can be grown as bushes or half-standards and should be planted 4m - 5m apart.
This is also a good rootstock for grafting large fan and espalier pear trees - allow a spread of up to 4m.
If you are planting a mixed orchard the Pyrodwarf rootstock will produce a tree that is roughly equivalent to the apple MM111 rootstock.
