Emperor Francis cherry

The Emperor Francis cherry was the source of the first cherry genetic map

The Emperor Francis cherry is a sweet cherry cultivar (Prunus avium) that produces a bright red fruit which is resistant to cracking.[1] In 1996, it was the source of the first cherry genetic map, which was created from a haploid-microspore derived population from the Emperor Francis cultivar.[2] It is also one of the sources of the Newfane sweet cherry, which was created by crossing the Emperor Francis with the Stella cherry.[3]
