     My response-------

     Victoria's comments are right on target.  Also, someone said something to
the effect that Seckel was always on quince.  This is an error as Seckel is not
compatible on any quince clone.  However, Seckel (and Honeysweet) are naturally
dwarfish (10' or so).
Most all peach are budded to full size stocks (lovell).

     Hope this helps.
