The trial was carried through in the fishery of the Embrapa- Technology Transfer in Canoinhas - SC, the period of December of 2003 the July of 2005. The effect of interstock was studied, in the production of peach tree seedlings. The treatments had been the combination of two rootstock ('Okinawa' and 'Capdeboscq'), four interstock (plum tree 'Reubennel' and 'Irati', Umezeiro and cherry 'Capulin') and two scion ('Coral' and 'Chimarrita'). O initial experimental design used were entirely randomized, with 20 treatments, 6 replications and 8 plants for parcel. After the cicatrisation and growth of the scion, the seedlings had been transplanted for definitive orchard, without the treatments with the interstocks of Umezeiro and Cherry that presented low survival with the peach tree rootstocks used in this work. O delineation in this in case that he were block-type randomized with 12 treatments, 4 repetitions and 11 plants for parcel. The growth of the scion was estimated for the variables: diameter 5cm above of the point of graft, length of the main ramification and number of secondary ramifications. With relation to the growth of the scion, was verified more that the intergrafting seedlings with plum tree present a reduced growth, with possibility of use in accumulated orchards.
