Notes and observations
This accession was considered proprietary until 2008. In August 2008, Tracy Kahn contacted Ellen Brokaw who contacted the widow of Dan Sheehan who licensed Brokaw's nursery in 1996 to handle the Olympic Gold. Larry Rose then informed Tracy Kahn that there was no patent on the variety and we have permission to plant it. We do not have fruit quality information at this time.
No longer commercially available in California. This accession no longer has an approved bud source. Please refer to the CCPP for information on another approved bud source or to start a reintroduction inquiry.
