Hey everyone! What a wonderful community.
My name is Tommy, I am a biologist stationed in Nova Scotia, Canada. My groups research is focussed on improving apples and apple trees for the fruit growing community. Our hopes are to help growers get varieties and sports that have improved traits - everything from disease to aesthetics! We love apple trees and we want to see them flourish.
I am hoping to do two things:
Find some cool new apple sports we can study! Do you have any interesting apple sports? Would you be willing to send us some tissue?
Talk to some commercial growers in the apple/fruit growing industry. I love the opportunity to pick some of the brains of real fruit growing pros!
If you think you could help me out with any of the above, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
