Composition of the essential oil of black currant buds - its variability and inheritance

Acta Horticulturae: 183-195

Composition of the essential oil of black currant buds - its variability and inheritance

Analysis of the monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes in the essential oils of flower buds of seven varieties and their hybrids using gas-liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry enabled the phenotypic formula of each variety and hybrid to be determined. Six monoterpene phenotypes (A-F) and six sesquiterpene phenotypes (I-VI) are recognized. The phenotypes of 16 varieties of diverse origin are tabulated.
