Eliezer E. Goldschmidt
|Eliezer E. Goldschmidt|
|Known for||Research on Etrog citron and more|
|Institutions||Hebrew University of Jerusalem|
He is mostly known for his many research projects on the citron genetics, shape variability of citrons, and all which is relevant for the citron cultivation for etrog ritual. He developed an auxin which is very instrumental in preserving the style and stigma of the citron, which adds beauty and halachic promotion to an etrog.
He has many credits on different citrus species, and general agriculture as well.
He is one of the retirees from the Hebrew University faculty, working on a project to lengthen the shelf live of produce, and to heighten the produce of wheat.
