‘Adria’ Pear Cultivar
AbstractIn recent years, at Fruit Research Station Cluj-Napoca, Romania, were homologated several new cultivars of pear: ‘Ina Estival’ (1999), ‘Virgiliu Hibernal’ (2000), ‘Jubileu 50’, ‘Milenium’ (2003), ‘Rosioara de Cluj’ (2005), ‘Arvena’ (2007), ‘Meda’ (2009), ‘Latina’ (2009) (Sestras et al., 2006, 2007). In 2010 was homologated the pear cultivar ‘Adria’, which was obtained by selection in F1 hybrids derived from ‘Napoca’ x ‘Red Williams’ (‘Red Bartlett’) hybridization. Trees are medium vigour, with moderate branching and spreading habit, being very productive and suitable adaptation to Romanian weather conditions. Fruit size is large, with soft firmness and juicy flesh; the colour changes from green to yellow attractive upon maturity. Time of maturity for consumption is the second decade of August, when the fresh fruit has a good quality rating.
