RESEARCHES CONCERNING THE CLONAL VARIABILITY AT THE STARKSPUR GOLDEN DELICIOUS APPLE VARIETY

ST. Casavela, A. Manughevici
The apple Spur types are unstable from the genetic point of view, presenting in the orchards, a great variability of forms. In the variety Spur Golden were selected three types.

The 1405/965, type having trees of a compact type, with a very reduced vigour and with some features and pelicular characters, may be considered a new bud sport variety of the spur type appeared on a whole tree belonging to the Starkspur Golden delicious variety.

By its compactness, fruit bearing precocity and the reduced vigour of growing, this type present a great importance for production, especially for the setting up of the high density apple orchards.
