Our apples - Les pommiers de chez nous
1 edition

Published March 31, 1999 by Shahrokh Khanizadeh, Agriculture Canada .

About the Book

"Our Apples" is the most authoritative illustrated book of apple varieties yet produced. It describes 254 apple varieties grown in Eastern and Central Canada. It also gives a list of alternate names which have been used to describe these varieties over time. The book will prove useful to those involved in apple growing and culture and to apple breeders who need regional information to help in the selection of breeding parents.
The presence of more than 400 high quality images of fruits, flowers and leaves along with a detailed written description of each variety makes this book a useful tool for identifying apple cultivars. Symbols have been added to quickly distinguish cultivars with specific characteristics such as winter hardiness, apple scab resistance, McIntosh type fruit, and usefulness as rootstocks or ornamentals. Varieties which can be used to make juice or cider, and those useful for processing have also been identified by a symbol.
Information on over 1400 apple cultivars can be obtained from Pedigree, A Genetic Resource Inventory System. This computer program was developed to trace characteristics, view images and draw pedigrees of 37 different types of horticultural fruit crops.
