Tree and fruit characteristics of four apple novelties in the Czech Republic
The cultivars Antopa, Idapaz and Semira were registered in the Czech Republic in March 2018. In addition, Kreja was registered in February 2019. In this study their tree and fruit characteristics were compared with the three standard cultivars Gala, Golden Delicious and Jonagold growing in the same experimental orchard. The tree vigour of the novelties range from Antopa that is similar to Gala up to Kreja which is similar to Jonagold. Antopa with the longest storable fruits is resistant to scab. Fruits of all novelties are attractive and their taste is very good to excellent. They are not susceptible to storage disorders.
