Abstract:
'Valley Red' is a new June-bearing (short day) strawberry cultivar from the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service breeding programme in Corvallis, Oregon, released in cooperation with the Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station, The Washington State University Agricultural Research Centre, and Agriculture and Agri-Foods Canada. 'Valley Red' was selected in 1996 from the cross 'Anaheim' × 'Puget Reliance' and was tested as ORUS 1790-1. 'Valley Red' is a high-yielding cultivar that produces medium-sized fruit that are very uniform in size and shape. The fruit is primarily suited to processing with its dark red internal and external colour. 'Valley Red' is named for its outstanding performance in the Willamette Valley in Oregon, the Skagit Valley in Washington, and the Fraser River Valley in British Columbia.
