Interpretive Summary: ‘Stolo’ is a new June-bearing strawberry (Fragaria ·ananassa Duchesne ex Rozier) cultivar from the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), Pacific Agri-Food Research Center (PARC) in Agassiz, released in cooperation with the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, U.S. Department of Agriculture– Agricultural Research Service, Washington State University (WSU) Horticultural Research and Development Center, and AAFC sites in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC, and Kentville, NS. ‘Stolo’ has been noted for high yields of late-season fruit with excellent quality suitable for both fresh and processing markets, good flavor, and tolerance to root weevil (Otiorhynchus sp.). Its glossy red fruit is primarily suited for the fresh market.

Technical Abstract: ‘Stolo’ is a new June-bearing strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa Duchesne ex Rozier) cultivar from the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), Pacific Agri-Food Research Center (PARC) in Agassiz, released in cooperation with the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, U.S. Department of Agriculture– Agricultural Research Service, Washington State University Horticultural Research and Development Center, and AAFC sites in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC, and Kentville, NS. ‘Stolo’, tested as BC96-33-4, was bred by C. Kempler in 1995 and selected in Abbotsford, BC, by C. Kempler and H.A. Daubeny in 1997 among the progeny of a cross between ‘Puget Reliance’ and ‘Whonnock’. ‘Puget Reliance’ is a high-yielding, large fruited Pacific–Northwest (PNW) cultivar released by the WSU breeding program in Puyallup, WA (Moore, 1995; Moore et al., 1995) that is well adapted to Fraser Valley conditions. ‘Whonnock’ is a cross between ‘Sumas’ and ‘Hapil’ and was released from the PARC program in 1999. Although it was not adopted by growers in the PNW because of its unattractive, rough, and seedy fruit, ‘Whonnock’ was used extensively as a parent by the PARC breeding program because of its high yields and excellent tolerance to root weevils and soilborne diseases. ‘Stolo’ has been noted for high yields of late-season fruit with excellent quality suitable for both fresh and processing markets, good flavor, and tolerance to root weevil (Otiorhynchus sp.). Its glossy red fruit is primarily suited for the fresh market.
