, we are unaware of any study that has assessed the response of ‘Skeena’ to GA 3 , a cultivar that has been widely adopted by producers in the PNW. Indeed, response of sweet cherry to preharvest GA 3 applications has been shown to be cultivar

objective of this study was to determine the effects of irrigation frequency, P fertigation, and cultivar (Skeena and Cristalina) on the size (quality parameter) and levels of different types of phenolic compounds (total phenolics, tartaric esters, flavonols

Breeding Program. Trees had been propagated on Mazzard seedling rootstocks and were between 7 and 34 years of age. Six cultivars (Sandra Rose, Summit, Lapins, Skeena, Sumtare, and 13S2009) were selected for the study with a wide range of firmness and

sweet cherry orchard of ‘Cristalina’ and ‘Skeena’ cultivars on the dwarfing rootstock Gisela 6 ( Prunus cerasus × Prunus canescens ) was planted in Mar. 2005 at the Pacific Agri-Food Research Center (PARC) in Summerland, British Columbia, Canada. Since

Harvest and storage of fruit. ‘Skeena’ sweet cherries ( Kappel et al., 2000 ) were harvested from a commercial orchard in Summerland, BC, Canada, on the morning of 9 July 2015. The cherry cuticle supplement was applied using an air-blast sprayer (Turbo

Seasonal changes in freezing tolerance of stems and buds of Rubus idaeus L. `Chilliwack', `Comox', `Meeker', `Skeena' and `Willamette' clones were measured from November through March of 1988-1989 and 1989-1990. Eight additional clones were tested in 1989-1990. Canes were harvested from the field, cut into two-bud samples and subjected to controlled freezing tests. Samples were seeded with ice, held at -2°C overnight and then frozen at 3°C/hour. Viability was estimated by visual browning. Vascular tissue at the base of the buds was the least freeze tolerant tissue in these samples. Results of both the 1988-1989 and 1989-1990 freezing tests, indicated `Meeker' and `Willamette' cold acclimated more slowly in the fall than `Chilliwack', `Comox' and `Skeena'. However, in the spring, `Willamette' and `Meeker' were slower to lose freeze tolerance than the other three clones.

Randomly amplified polymorphic DNA markers (RAPDs) were used to distinguish among seven Pacific Northwest red raspberry (Rubus idaeus L.) cultivars. Random 10-base sequences were used to distinguish among `Chilcotin', `Chilliwack', `Comox', `Meeker', `Qualicum', `Tulameen', and `Willamette'. The seven cultivars could be distinguished even though there is considerable relatedness among the cultivars. `Chilliwack' and `Comox' share `Skeena' as a parent, and `Chilliwack' is a parent of `Qualicum'. `Willamette' is a parent of `Meeker'. This technology shows promise as a means of distinguishing cultivars and developing a genetic map to aid in breeding.
