Scions on EMLA 26 are intermediate in vigor between EMLA 9 and EMLA 7 and producing a tree about 45% the size of that on seedling rootstocks. Compared with EMLA 7, EMLA 26 is slightly less vigorous and superior, in that it produces better quality fruit and also crops earlier in the life of the tree. MLA 26 is not resistant to collar rot (Phytophthora cactorum) and should not be planted on wet or infected soils. It is also subject to fire blight.
