North-East Hungary, the sour cherry growing region is still rich in genetic variability of the species. As a result of clone selection, useful varieties have been selected during the last quarter of the 20th century as ‘Újfehértói fürtös’, ‘Debreceni bőtermő’ and ‘Kántorjánosi’, which furnish more than a half of the Hungarian sour cherry market. Recently in 2007, further two varieties have been approved and registered by the State: ‘Petri’ and ‘Éva’ (Szabó & Szôke, 2008). Their experimental evaluation was performed at Újfehértó and at Helvécia. They are similar to the earlier approved ones, but are more valuable than those regarding several qualities. The choice of varieties has been increased due to the novelties, and some of the old varieties could be substituted by them especially in the NE-Hungarian region.
