The Japanese plum METIS®

BREEDER – Glen BRADFORD, California /  EXPERIMENTAL TERRITORIES – Italy, France, Spain / ORIGINS – 90 Years

It was in the 90s that Norman and Glen BRADFORD oriented their research toward the Japanese plum and other similar species. Based on the genetic cluster created by FW ANDERSON, they triple the resources devoted to the new project: the number of hybrids produced and evaluated gradually passes from 1,000 to 25,000 every year! Interspecific crosses with the apricot yield exceptional results.
