EMLA 26 Rootstock


The EMLA 26 rootstock, ideal for compact spaces and high-density orchards, produces dwarf apple trees that are 40-50% the size of standard trees, facilitating early fruiting and resistance to collar rot and woolly apple aphids. However, due to its smaller root system, trees on EMLA 26 require support and are vulnerable to fire blight, making it a favored choice for both home gardeners and commercial growers.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.
