The researches carried out at the Research and Development Station for Fruit Growing Voinesti aimed to highlight the attributes of some new apple elite performance with genetic resistance to diseases obtained from the hybrid combinations performed in 1992 and between 2004-2005. Apple elites resulted from the selection of 3,728 hybrids of apples, obtained from the original material of great genetic diversity. All five selected apple elites candidate for new varieties, have a strong genetic scab resistance, high quality fruits and fulfill the present requirements of apple varieties. Elite H 8/86 - 92 obtained by the crossing of 'Prima’ x 'Frumos de Voineşti’ is noted for its precocity, productivity and quality of fruits and has already been registered at ISTIS for testing and approval. Those resulted from the 'Goldenspur’ x 'Florina’ crossing hybridization, show fruits with size over 160 g, have a yellowish or yellowishgreenish colour and very good taste. Elites coming from crossing of 'Florina’ x 'Idared’ bear medium to large fruits, covered 2/3 of the surface with an attractive shiny red. All scab resistance apple elites prove economic efficiency, a high and constant yield, great appearance and taste.
