Rédei, K., Osváth-Bujtás, Z., & Keserű, Z. (2007). Clonal selection of black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) in Hungary: a review. International Journal of Horticultural Science, 13(3), 153-56. https://doi.org/10.31421/IJHS/13/3/763
Black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) is the most important fast growing stand-forming tree species in Hungary. Its importance is increasing in many other countries, too. As a result of a new selection programme 13 black locust clones have been improved for setting up clones trials and seed orchard. In 2003 five of them (R.p. `Bácska', `Homoki', 'Szálas', `Oszlopos' and `Vacsi') were registered as cultivarcandidates. Tissue culture method has proved as a suitable mean of propagating superior individuals. The micropropagated plants have been growing successfully in the clone trials.
