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:
  • Palomar
  • Monterey
  • Albión
  • Portola
  • San Andreas
Sound familiar? Maybe because, through sheer bizarre coincidence, the University of California has released varieties with the exact same names! What a crazy world, huh?

(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.

Beyond the striking color and popular flavor, strawberries are loaded with nutrients including powerful, disease fighting antioxidants and 93% of the recommended daily allowance for vitamin C. In fact strawberries are so nutritious, research is finding that they may reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers, and help memory. California strawberries are a special treat for every day, anytime of day, all year round.

Rachelle, we completely agree with you. Strawberries are one of our most researched crop and definitely is our favorite tasting. We help the strawberry growers of California get the best yield with the most vibrant strawberries. Everyone talks about the taste and appeal, but it's nice to see some still looking at the health benefits as well!
