Abstract: A new sweet cherry rootstock cultivar‘Landing 3’was derived from interspecific hybrids of sour cherry(Prunus cerusus)and Chinese cherry(Prunus pseudocerasus). It has very good grafting compatibility with most sweet cherry cultivars. It is a vigorous rootstock with developed root system and it easily produces sucker after root cutting. It can promote branching of grafting tree. The fully yields of grafting trees can be reached after planting 4–5 years. The grafting tree of Van/Landing 3 is slightly stronger than that of Van/Landing 2. The number of new shoots,tree height,trunk diameter and crown diameter of Van/Landing 3 are higher than those of Van/Landing 2 in the 4th year after planting. The average yield of Van/Landing 3 is up to 26.0 kg per tree in the 6th year after planting,which is 162.5% of the yield of Van/Landing 2.
