Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: This record contains videos of apple trees acquired from a ground vehicle throughout the growing season at the USDA-ARS, Appalachian Fruit Research Station. Research in precision management methods in orchard crops revolve around locating objects of interest, namely flowers, fruitlets, and fruit, autonomously. This dataset is provided so that researchers without access to research plots or mature trees can experiment with the data acquired during the course of an ongoing project on apple flower estimation in images. The trees shown in these videos have a mixture of fruit colors and growth habits. In particular, the four varieties represent one of each of the Lespinasse ideotypes.
