List of apple varieties
The list of apple varieties contains over 7600 names of over 5700 varieties with over 2900 images of the cultivated apple .
Appearance of the variety names
- Since many, especially old varieties, have very different regional names, all known names are listed for each variety.
- Each variety has a main entry with the preferred name (if there is an article for the variety, with a link to its lemma) and, if possible, with a picture and a more detailed description.
- Subordinate variety names each have a secondary entry that only refers to the main entry; possibly also on several main entries, separated by commas. Side entries contain no further information or images and no links.
- In the main entry, in the first column after the preferred name, the other names are added alphabetically in brackets and separated from one another by a comma. To avoid confusion with compound names in parentheses, e.g. B. "Cox Orange Pippin (Potter)", the subordinate names are introduced by an "or:", z. B. "Berlepsch (or: Baron De Berlepsch, Freiherr Von Berlepsch, Goldrenette Freiherr Von Berlepsch)".
- Foreign language names are possible.
- If there are German names, these are used as a preferred designation.
Names are not listed separately for which only
- an umlaut or another letter with diacritical marks was reduced to its basic letter ("Altländer" -> "Altlander")
- a "ß" was replaced by "ss" ("Prussian" → "Prussian")
- a hyphen ("-") has been replaced by a space ("") or vice versa.
Spelling of names
- The names are put in the singular.
- Preceding articles are omitted ("La Nationale" → "Nationale")
- All names are written in the Latin alphabet and transcribed accordingly for other original spellings.
- Old spellings are modernized ("Zimmel-like crown apple" → "Cinnamon-like crown apple")
- The first letter of every word in the name is capitalized, everything else is lowercase.
- Letters and numbers are separated by a space.
- The genitive apostrophe in English variety names is retained.
- Diacritical marks, "ß", hyphens, periods and round brackets are possible.
- The names do not contain commas.
The list is sorted alphabetically according to the variety name.
- No distinction is made between uppercase and lowercase letters.
- Letters with diacritics are treated like the corresponding basic letters. (The Wikimedia table sorting does it a little differently, e.g. it sorts accented letters after the normal alphabet.)
- Hyphens are sorted like spaces.
- Apostrophes and periods are ignored ("Citron D'Hiver" like "Citron DHiver", "Wadey's Seedling" like "Wadey's Seedling").
- "Ss" is sorted like "ss".
