I have access to mature and high yielding quince trees: Le Bourget & a few Champion. I think they are on Provence rootstock. My question is if I take clones from the Le Bourget will the tree be the replica of the mother or should I take Provence rootstock and graft onto that? Or do both? Some of the trees are almost 15 years old and produce more fruit every year without proper pruning and professional care.
Thank you and happy growing!

Welcome!

A cutting will be a duplicate of whatever plant you take it from.

On quince hybrids, the rootstock is a dwarfing stock. If you don't mind if your new trees are 30 ft tall, there's no need to graft. Smiling
