'Masbovera', 'Glorieta' and 'Francoli', three new almond varieties from IRTA

, : 'Masbovera', 'Glorieta' and 'Francoli', three new almond varieties from IRTA. Acta Horticulturae ( 373): 75-82

Masbovera (A200), Glorieta (A205) and Francoli (3-361) were selected from crosses made in 1975 and 1976, and have recently been registered and released from IRTA's almond breeding programme. Data on their main agronomic and commercial characteristics are presented and compared to some important cultivars.
