The DNA analysis project run via FruitID is now in its 8th year. This year the scheme offers DNA analysis at £32.50 plus VAT per sample for Apples, Pears, and Cherries.
If you would like to participate, please go to www.fruitID.com/#help where you can find the Announcement and Timetable, a Request Form to ask for sample bags, detailed collection guidance, results from previous years, and an Introduction to DNA Fingerprinting.
Also at the FruitID website Muriel Smith’s National Apple Register for the UK is now available as a digital download.
To find it, go to www.fruitID.com/#help then click on ‘Pomonas’ from the list on the left and look for the 1971 entry. Thanks to the People’s Trust for Endangered Species for funding the digitisation of this great resource.
