June 2008 Fruit Patent Round-up

Here's an idea I had a while back--maybe it's painfully dull to some of you, but it's the sort of list I love clicking through. Here are the fruit cultivar patent applications published by U.S. Patent and Trademark Office last month:

APPLES:
'Emmons' - A chance seedling, probably of 'Golden Delicious' and (Red) 'Delicious'
'Galaval' - A whole-tree mutation of 'Galaxy' (a sport of 'Gala'), notable for its intense dark purple-brown color (This is desirable why, exactly?)
'McLaughlin Gala' - A limb mutation of 'Kidds D-8' (a sport of 'Gala'), with yellow skin and early ripening
'B. Thorne McIntosh' - A limb mutation of 'Starling' (a sport of 'McIntosh') which begins color 80 days (!) before the original.

CHERRIES:
'Rosie Ranier' - Interestingly, not a derivative of 'Ranier', but probably similar in appearance: a blush yellow cherry from a cross of 'Bing' x 'Earlisweet'

KIWIS:
'Hongyang' - A partially red-fleshed kiwi from seed of Actinidia chinensis var. rufopulpa, from China.

FIGS:
'Sequoia' - A large, green, fresh market fig from the cross 'Tena' x D3-1.

STRAWBERRIES:
'PS-5298' - A proprietary late season strawberry cultivar for the northern growing district of California.
'PS-5096' - Another proprietary late season strawberry cultivar for the northern growing district of California.

PLUMS:
'Vibehue99-1' - A chance sport of 'Angelino', with very dark skin, good flavor, and shipping quality.
'Suplumthirtyeight' - A very early Japanese plum variety from a cross of 92P037-130-001 x 'Suplumtwenty' (Got to love those SunWorld names...)

NECTARINE:
'August Lion III' - A large, late, yellow clingstone nectarine

GRAPEVINE:
'Sheegene-1' - A large, dark red, seedless table grape, from the cross 'Red Globe' x 'Princess'
'Sheegene-3' - A large, red, seedless table grape, from the cross 'Red Globe' x 'Princess'
'Sheegene-4' - A large, green, nearly seedless table grape, from the cross 'Red Globe' x 'Autumn Seedless'

LEMON:
'Eureka Seedless' - Seedless limb sport of 'Eureka'

This won't truly have success, I think this way.
