Zaiger Interspecifics

Interspecific hybrids result from the cross-breeding of two or more species, usually through multiple generations. Breakthroughs by Zaiger Genetics in fruit hybridizing are yielding new fruit types and cultivars with especially desirable new flavors, aromas, textures, degrees of sweetness and appearances.

Listed below are the various kinds of patented and trademarked Zaiger Interspecific Fruit – chiefly hybrids of Prunus species salicina, armeniaca, persica and avium (plum, apricot, peach/nectarine and cherry, respectively) - classified according to their predominant horticultural characteristics, i.e. the fruit type they most resemble, their cultural fruit type. Included also are the highly successful Zaiger Interspecific Rootstocks.
