The plum-apricot hybrids, numbers 16-19, 16-22, 16-23, 16-25, 16-26 and 16-29, were established in 1989 from crossings of the plum cultivar ‘Stanley’ of Prunus domestica L. species with the apricot cultivar ‘Modesto’ of Prunus armeniaca L. species.
They can be attributed to a separate botanical species with the working name Prunus domestiaca. The plum-apricot hybrid No. 23-128 was established by crossing the plum ‘Green gage’ of P. domestica species with the apricot ‘Melitopolskij tchjornij’ of the purple apricot species Prunus dasycarpa (Ehrh.) Borkh.
We think that hybrid 23-128 can be attributed to a separate botanical species with the working name Prunus domesticarpa. All the hybrids obtained had dark coloured fruits and fine pubescence over the fruit skin.
Only hybrid No 16-26 had yellow coloured fruits.
The plum type dominated in the shape of the fruits, stones and leaves.
