Abstract

In the Cultivar and Germplasm Release article “‘Allgold’ and ‘Goldilocks’ Peaches” by J.N. Moore, Roy C. Rom, Stanley A. Brown, and William A. Sistrunk [HortScience 19(6):891–892, 1984], the captions of Figures 2 and 3 were reversed. The selection test numbers given in the text for these cultivars (‘Allgold’ = A-142; ‘Goldilocks’ = A-15) are correct.

Abstract

‘Allgold’ and ‘Goldilocks’ are 2 new cultivars of clingstone peaches [Prunus persica (L.) Batsch.] with nonmelting flesh texture suitable for processing. Both are earlier ripening than ‘Babygold 5’ and possess good processing qualities. ‘Allgold’ is notable for its high tolerance to bacterial spot.

Abstract

The 3 harvesters tested provided about the same harvest efficiency. Harvesters did not show significant differences in sound, broken, and bruised pods harvested from 2 fields. More pod clusters and less trash were obtained in the field with more mature pods. Under the same field conditions, 2.6 times more snap beans could be harvested with the FMC model GB-110 and Chisholm-Ryder Multi-Density than with the Chisholm-Ryder Hi-Boy. Quality differences of canned beans harvested with the machines were too small to differentiate by the USDA standards for grades of canned snap beans.
