1/11/2021 - UPDATE: This product was previously the Royal Red Honeycrisp Apple (EMLA-111 rootstock), but the supplier ran out. We've substituted and updated the product to the original Honeycrisp (EMLA-7), this root stock is similar in size. While it isn't the trademarked "royal red" it is the original honeycrisp and is more fire blight resistant. More on rootstocks.
