EUFRUIT WP2 Scanning report Y2 "Stone Fruit Variety Testing"

Peach breeding and varietal testing of novel peach/nectarines and sweet cherry cultivars are important research topics at the Fruit Research Unit of Forlì (CREA-FRF). The new peach/nectarine variety should be consistently productive, tolerant to major diseases, endowed with prolonged on-tree keeping quality with concentrated harvest (few pickings), the fruit being tolerant to disorders and handlings, with good fruit external (large size, well-coloured skin) and internal (high firmness, good taste and flavour) quality. The new sweet cherry varieties should be self-fertile, consistently productive, tolerant to major diseases, the fruit being tolerant to skin cracking, with good fruit external (large size, well-coloured skin) and internal (high firmness, good taste and flavour) quality.
