  • Malus sieversii has previously been identified as the main contributor to the genome of the cultivated apple (Malus pumila), on the basis of morphological, molecular, and historical evidence. (wikipedia.org)
  • These and other Malus species have been used in some recent breeding programmes to develop apples suitable for growing in harsh climates unsuitable for M. pumila, mainly for increased cold tolerance. (wikipedia.org)
