Our friends at Fruit ID are running their DNA scheme again this year:
Identification of apple, pear and cherry varieties using DNA
Following the success of the 2016-20 DNA Schemes with over 5,100 samples analysed, our DNA Scheme is again being offered for 2021. East Malling Research have confirmed a price to us of £27.60 plus VAT for Apple, Pear and Cherry samples.
If you would like to participate, please take a look at the Announcement and Timetable on https://www.fruitid.com/#help where there is a Request Form to get sample bags. There is sample handling guidance, the Scheme results from previous years, and an Introduction to DNA Fingerprinting.
Please feel free also to circulate this to anyone you think might be interested and let me know if you have any questions.
