Eurosemillas' secret California strawberry breeding program?
I saw this a while back and didn't say anything, but I came across this article again and thought I'd post it, because its ridiculousness amuses me:
Company from Cordoba creates five new varieties of strawberries (FreshPlaza)
Why is this ridiculous? Look at the names:
- San Andreas
(Except the Spanish seem to have felt the need to put an accent mark on the "o" in Albion--kind of odd, since everyone I know puts the accent on the first syllable...)
Eurosemillas is the international licensee for all the U.C. strawberry varieties, but I'm not sure the rights involved in that include the right to claim to have actually bred the varieties. Although I suspect it pains the European ego slightly to be growing so much of American varieties.
