Dormant buds of Fascionello and Pizzuta d'Avola were gamma -irradiated (3 kR); no mutants were obtained from the latter. Two mutants were obtained from Fascionello. They were spur variants, although one of them reverted to normal habit. Both mutants had a higher shelling yield than Fascionello, flowered 15-20 days later and were higher yielding.
