In the years 1974-1990 an experiment was carried out with the aim of
studing 3 apple cultivars on interstocks Antonowka and Hibernal. Jonagold
was the most promising cultivar because of the large and beautiful fruits
and a yield as good as Golden Delicious. This cultivar can be recommended
for commercial orchards. Honeygold had the highest crop efficiency index,
but its fruits were smaller and more easily damaged during transportation
than those of Jonagold. Cumulative total yields form the years 1981-1990
were as follows: Golden Delicious - 175.1 T/ha; Jonagold - 172.9 T/ha;
Honeygold - 170.1 T/ha.
