Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: The Register of New Fruit and Nut Varieties is a compilation of descriptions of new fruit and nut cultivars from around the world, with particular attention to cultivars from North America. In the 47th edition, one newly released apricot cultivar and five pubescent-skinned Prunophora hybrids are described in terms of their origins, important fruit traits and prominent tree characteristics. Of the six described cultivars, all Prunophora hybrids originated from a California breeding program, while the new apricot cultivar was a product of breeding efforts in New Zealand.
