Scientists of the Institute of Horticulture of the National Academy of Agrarian Sciences of Ukraine (IH NAAS) presented three new varieties of pears of their own selection. The head of the laboratory of selection and technology of growing fruit crops of the Institute of Horticulture of the National Academy of Agrarian Sciences of Ukraine, Candidate of Agricultural Sciences Yulia Khodakovskaya, reported about this.
Ukrainian scientists presented the autumn pear variety “Vizhnitsa,” the authors of which are the famous plant breeders V.P. Kopan, K.M. Kopan, writes SEEDS.org.ua according to the press service of NAASU.
This variety is very popular because of its great taste and scab resistance. Besides, the tree is fast-growing, and the fruits can be stored in the refrigerator until December. Among the advantages is a high stable yield, and the variety is compatible with quince.
The variety “Veresneve Devo” of early autumn ripening (author Matvienko M.V.) was also presented. The variety is resistant to the main diseases of the pear and is characterized by a high average yield – 45-50 t / ha.
To create the third variety of winter ripening period “Chinese Lantern”, plant breeders used varieties that have natural genetic resistance not only to fungal diseases but also to bacteriosis, which only East Asian varieties have.
“A very promising variety with high yields. Now it is undergoing a qualification examination and will be included in the State Register of Plant Varieties of Ukraine this year,” the scientist noted.
