Fitzgerald, J.; Cross, J.; Berrie, A. and Cubison, S. (2008) An assessment of apple varieties for their suitability in organic production systems. In: Boos, Markus (Ed.) Ecofruit - 13th International Conference on Cultivation Technique and Phytopathological Problems in Organic Fruit-Growing: Proceedings to the Conference from 18thFebruary to 20th February 2008 at Weinsberg/Germany, pp. 213-215.
Twenty seven varieties of apple were assessed for their susceptibility to apple scab,
mildew and rosy apple aphid in a replicated experiment at East Malling Research. The
varieties most affected by mildew were Goldrush, DL11, Liberty, Bohemia and Pinova.
Ceeval, Discovery, Edward VII, Howgate Wonder, Rajka, Rebella and Topaz had the
lowest incidences of mildew. The highest incidence of scab occurred on Pilot and Pinova,
but infestation was low throughout the assessment period. In 2006 when aphid populations
were high, Liberty, Goldrush and Delorina had no aphid infestations, and low infestations
were seen on Edward VII, Resi and Santana.
