Abstract

‘PLBAR B1’ is a new apple tree that originated as a limb sport mutation of ‘Cripps Pink.’ The new variety is notable for its exceptional color and early maturity as compared to ‘Cripps Pink.’ Fruit of the new variety is mature and ready for harvest 14 to 18 days earlier than fruit of ‘Cripps Pink.’

Description

Latin name of the genus and species of the plant claimed: Malus domestica.
Variety denomination: ‘PLBAR B1’.
BACKGROUND AND SUMMARY OF THE VARIETY
‘PLBAR B1’ originated as a limb sport mutation of ‘Cripps Pink’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 7,880). It was discovered by the inventor in a cultivated orchard at Pemberton, Western Australia during the 1999-2000 growing season. ‘PLBAR B1’ was asexually propagated by field grafting during the 2001-2002 growing season at Pemberton, and has been shown to remain true to type over successive generations.
‘PLBAR B1’ is a new and distinct apple tree notable for its exceptional color and early maturity as compared to ‘Cripps Pink.’ Fruit of the new variety is mature and ready for harvest about 14 to 18 days earlier than fruit of ‘Cripps Pink,’ as measured by a difference of 2 to 3 points in the industry standard starch score range of 1 to 6.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
FIG. 1 shows the fruit of ‘PLBAR B1’;
FIG. 2 shows a comparison of the fruit of ‘PLBAR B1’ (on the left) to parent variety ‘Cripps Pink’ (on the right) after starch testing.
FIGS. 3 and 4 show a tree of the ‘PLBAR B1’ variety.
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION OF THE VARIETY
The following detailed botanical description is based on observations of first generation trees planted in 2003, and described during the 2006-2007 and 2007-2008 growing seasons at Pemberton, Western Australia. Color descriptions refer to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart. It should be understood that the characteristics described will vary somewhat depending upon cultural practices and climatic conditions, and can vary with location and season. Quantified measurements are expressed as an average of measurements taken from a number of individual plants of the new variety. The measurements of any individual plant, or any group of plants, of the new variety may vary from the stated average.
