Abstract:
Chinook, a new primocane fruiting red raspberry (Rubus idaeus) from the US Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service breeding programme in Oregon, was released in cooperation with the Oregon State Agricultural Experimental Station, the Washington State University Agricultural Research Center and the Idaho Agricultural Experiment Station. This high-yielding, early-ripening primocane cultivar, produces large, very firm fruits that ship extremely well. Chinook was selected in 1976 from a cross between ORUS 1838 and ORUS 1842 and has been tested as ORUS 534-10. Compared to those of Heritage (a standard cultivar), Chinook fruits were firmer, more rounded, and ripened 7-10 days earlier. Fruiting Chinook primocanes were shorter, had fewer nodes than Heritage. Chinook canes were slightly smaller in diameter than Heritage and were not as sturdy. Chinook exhibits field tolerance to root rot (Phytophthora fragariae var. rubi) in commercial fields.
