Abstract

Two cultivars of apple i.e. Scarlet Gala and Red Fuji on EMLA-9, EMLA-26, EMLA-7, EMLA-
106 and EMLA-111 rootstocks were planted under high density with spacing of 3m x 3m and
were under evaluation for their growth and yield performance. On the basis of growth and yield
performance Scarlet Gala was observed better on EMLA-7 and EMLA-111. The performance of
Red Fuji was better on EMLA-111, EMLA-7 and EMLA-106.The Scarlet cultivar matured during
first fortnight of August and was attractive with orange red wash colour with yellow ground
colour and mostly medium in size on all the rootstocks. Red Fuji was light red in colour but
sweet in taste. The Red Fuji was late maturing
