Perhaps breeding wasn't the right word. Many varieties vary by way of
mutation when I single branch on a given tree has fruit of a significantly
different quality. This is called a sport. When such a mutation is
considered a useful improvment the discoverer can patent it and market it as
his own. There are scores of seperate patents on different strains of Red
Delicious for example.
