Bark (1994) suggested that the source of pink root resistance came from Excel 986 A, a male-sterile line used in the development of the hybrid cultivar Granex 33, and possesses sterile-type (S) cytoplasm. In doing so, the PRR strains of ‘Texas Early

Apple is one of the most important species among the temperate fruit crops. According to Vavilov (1930) , Central Asia is the center of origin for the domestic apple. His theory of “geography of genes,” that germplasm for breeding for resistance
