Title: The Apple Cultivar 'Goro'
Authors: E. Schaer and B. Krapf
This new apple cultivar was obtained
from crossing 'Golden Delicious' x 'Swiss Orange (Ontario x
Cox's Orange Pippin)'. The crossing
was done in 1951 at the Swiss
Federal Research Station, Wadenswil,
and resulted in 798 seedlings.
No. 308/M was recommended in
1972 for naming by the Swiss Specialist
Commission for Fruit Variety
The name is made up from
parts of the names of the parent varieties
and fulfills the requirements of the international rules for the nomenclature
of cultivated plants.
