Summary

Only early ripening cultivars of apples and pears may be grown successfully in the short and rather
cool growth season of the fruit producing areas of Norway. Due to a combination of high yield, good
fruit quality and scab resistance, the Swedish cultivar ‘Aroma’ is recommended as major cultivar for
organic apple production today. ’Philip’ is recommended as cultivar for organic pear production.
During 5 years 21 apple cultivars and 15 pear cultivars have been tested in organic orchards in
comparison with ‘Aroma’ and ‘Philip’. Several cultivars in the trial are promising for use in organic
production.
