Abstract
The growth from sprout sections of 5 cultivars on 4 media (based on Murashige & Skoog (MS) medium or Knop's medium) was compared. Desiree and Estima grew rapidly, producing large numbers of leaves and, especially for Desiree, of roots. Record and Foxton remained short, producing few leaves, while Pentland Squire was intermediate in height and leaf production. Overall growth was better on MS medium than on Knop's medium. Sprout tips grew slower than buds from lower nodes in the first culture generation but there were no significant differences in later generations.
