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. Seedling No. 308/M was recommended in 1972 for naming by the Swiss Specialist Commission for Fruit Variety Trials. 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.
