Merging new orchard designs with an efficient rootstock and high-coloring strain of an apple cultivar can result in production of higher yield with better fruit quality ( Fallahi et al., 2011 ; Marini et al., 2008 ; Veberic et al., 2007

strain of the CM is closely and positively related to frequency and severity of microscopic cracks in the CM ( Knoche and Peschel, 2006 ). Cracks impair the barrier function of the CM and serve as entry ports for fruit rot pathogens, including Botrytis
