On January 4th in Holovousy a traditional apple tasting was held in which 121 largely experienced evaluators took part. The final sequence of each item in each variety was based upon the sum of point scorings of smell, character of skin, flesh consistence, flesh juiciness, fruit appearance and double scoring the value for taste in general. Based upon final results, ‘Angold’ was this time surprisingly placed. This cultivar was assessed as the best not only in taste in general, but also in flesh consistence and flesh juiciness. According to smell, it was assessed in second place; however in fruit appearance it occupied only the 19th position. ´Angold´ in the general sequence was followed by two new novelties (´HL 2010´ and ´HL 2350´) which were publicly tasted for the first time. Next in order were placed the cultivars ´Meteor´, the selection ´HL 1194´ and ´Santana´.
