Fruit Breeding

New, innovative fruit varieties combine the highest quality aspirations of producers, the downstream stages and consumers with high productivity and robustness. Fruit breeding at Agroscope pursues these ambitions and organises breeding accordingly together with its partner organisation Varicom. In this context, Agroscope carries out and develops programmes for the breeding of apples, apricots, and now pears.
