Title: Crowley, a New Early Maturing Cranberry Variety for Washington and Oregon
Authors: C.C. Doughty and R. Garren Jr.
Crowley, formerly tested as WSU No. 72, is a new cranberry variety developed by Washington State University's Coastal Washington Research and Extension Unit, located at Lon Beach Washington.
The name was selected by the Washington cranberry growers to honor Mr.
D.J. Ceowley, Superintendent of the Coastal Washington Unit until his retirement in 1954. Mr.
Crowley started the cranberry breeding program in the early 1940's.
He made the original selections from 1200 seedlings, primarily to develop a variety which would ripen earlier than the standard 'McFarlin'.
