Apricot - it's all below the graft

Foolishly let shoots from the rootstock out compete an apricot, that I doubt will ever do much because of poor placement.

It's a T&M plant, but there is no note on the label about rootstock.

I'm tempted to just go with the rootstock at this point, what's it likely to be?

Or is this vigor reversible?

    Vigor is not reversible.
    No way to tell what root stock they have used.
    Sorry.
    Are you sure that it is not too late to save the top above graft part and remove suckers from below the graft.
