TResearch Spring 2024

This image was taken in the trial apple orchard in Teagasc Oak Park, Carlow. It highlights one of the 48 apple genotypes that are being assessed to characterise their physico-chemical quality and to develop a comprehensive sensory profile of the different apples grown in the Irish climate, as well as to understand the preferences of Irish apple consumers.
