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 that cataloged 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 every two 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 a valuable historic reference for scientists and members of the fruit and nut industries. This portion of List 51 describes blueberry cultivars released from 2019 up to the end of 2021.
