ROOTSTOCK

Used in grafting mostly to confer disease resistance on the variety to be produced. The rootstock is grown out onto which a cutting or bud from another plant is grafted. The plant part grafted onto the rootstock is usually called the scion. The scion is the plant that has the properties that propagator desires above ground, including the photosynthetic activity and the fruit characteristics. The rootstock is selected for its interaction with the soil, providing the roots and the stem to support the new plant, and resisting the relevant pests and diseases. After a few weeks the tissues of the two parts will have grown together, eventually forming a single plant. Usually the same species is used for both rootstock and scion but seedless watermelon growers are frequently using squash rootstock on which the seedless watermelon scion is grafted for disease resistance and vigor.
