Abstract

‘Alderman’ is a large, sweet, cold-hardy, Japanese-type plum hybrid involving Prunus salicina Lindl. and P. americana Marsh. It is being introduced by the Univ. of Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station for use in cold climates where other high-quality, Japanese-type plums may suffer winter injury. ‘Alderman’ was named after W.H. Alderman in commemoration of his 100th birthday in 1985 and in recognition of his many accomplishments as a scientist and administrator in horticultural science at the Univ. of Minnesota.

Abstract

‘Redwing’ is a primocane-fruiting (“fall-fruiting”) red raspberry (Rubus idaeus L.) cultivar (Fig. 1) developed by the Univ. of Minnesota fruit breeding program. It typically begins fruiting 10 to 14 days earlier than ‘Heritage’, the most widely grown commercial primocane-fruiting cultivar. ‘Redwing’ is intended to supplement or replace ‘Heritage’ in situations where earlier primocane fruiting is desired.

Abstract

‘Summercrisp’ is a cold-hardy, early-season pear (Pyrus spp. L.) cultivar introduced by the Univ. of Minnesota for use in cold climates where most pear cultivars grow poorly and do not fruit consistently. The name ‘Summercrisp’ connotes the early harvest season and that the fruit is best consumed without ripening, while the flesh is firm and crisp.
