Title: 'Earliglow', a New Early Ripening Strawberry
Authors: D.H. Scott and A.D. Draper
'Earliglow' is a new strawberry cultivar released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station in January 1975 from the cooperative strawberry breeding program. 'Earliglow,' tested as MdUS 3861, originated from a cross of MdUS 2359 ('Fairland' x 'Midland') x MdUS 2713 ('Redglow' x 'Surecrop') made in 1964. Seedlings of this progeny were screened for resistance to red stele root rot in a greenhouse in the winter of 1964-65, the resistant seedlings grown at Salisbury, Maryland, in 1965, and MdUS 3861 was selected in the spring of 1966.
