Interpretive Summary: Names, synonyms, and brief descriptions of new and noteworthy fruit cultivars are periodically published in the "Brooks and Olmo Register of New Fruit and Nut Varieties." This paper is the Pear section of the 44th Brooks and Olmo Register and describes the Asian pear cultivar 'Sooyoung' and the European cultivars with trademark names 'AC Harrow Crisp', 'AC Harrow Gold', 'Ambrosia' and 'Green Jade'. These lists allow pomologists, horticulturists and fruit breeders to review the characteristics of fruit and nut cultivars that have been released in North America. Fruit explorers, developers of new cultivars and patent/trademark officials also rely on this registry to learn of promising fruit varieties, to document variety names, and to avoid duplication in the naming of new cultivars.
