In collaboration with the University of Budapest, several new apple varieties and mutants are placed in an experimental garden. Registration research and findings are done with the help of the University of Kesthely.

Additionally, there are close links with the University of Debrecen. With the associated breeding institute and the botanical garden there are several new apple and pear varieties placed in the experimental garden. Next to the new species the garden sometimes produces unexpected treasures. Ancient species can be found here, but sometimes new species arise spontaneously. Testing our own new species also takes place at the university. Here we test the varieties for resistance to diseases, suitability for the consumer market, cultivation and the area per se for growing fruit. We are always looking for apple varieties which are resistant and less susceptible to disease. We also investigate in rootstocks and  interstems to make the cultivation of apples as easy as possible.
