Racskó, J., Szabó, Z., Apáti, F., & Nyéki, J. (2008). The expression of the primigenic dominance in the flowering and fruit set of selected apple cultivars on different growth inducing rootstocks. International Journal of Horticultural Science, 14(1-2.), 27-31. https://doi.org/10.31421/IJHS/14/1-2./777
Authors investigated the expression of the primigenic dominance in the flowering and fruit from open and self pollination of four apple cultivars ('Gala Royal', 'Golden Smoothee', Pink Lady' and 'Vista Bella') during two consecutive years in Western Hungary on three different growth inducing rootstocks (M. 9, MM. 106 and seedling). There were not significant differences in the effect of the rootstocks on the flowering order in a flower cluster. Significant difference in the fruit set in open pollination was found among individual flowers in a cluster, mostly between the king bloom and the second flower. The rate of the fruit set from self-pollination was very low without any significant difference among individual flowers in the cluster.
