Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: The Brooks and Olmo Registry of Fruit and Nut Varieties is a compilation of fruit and nut variety descriptions first published in 1952 and cataloging cultivars from 1920 through 1950. A second edition was published in 1972, and a third was published in 1997. Since then, fruit and nut variety descriptions have been published in HortScience about every two years, though the title has changed slightly in recent years. Each year, fruit breeders and nut breeders contribute sections of the list, and the sections are published as one manuscript with several authors. Included crops are: apple, apricot, blueberry, blackberry, currant, gooseberry, raspberry, strawberry, cherry, citrus, grape, almond, black walnut, pecan, peach, nectarine, pear, quince, plum and several tropical fruits. The Register of New Fruit and Nut Cultivars is an extremely valuable historic reference for scientists and members of the fruit and nut industries. This portion of List 47 describes strawberry cultivars released from the end of 2011 to the end of 2013.
