Advanced selections from the breeding programmes at the Institute of Horticultural Research at East Malling, UK, and the Scottish Crop Research Institute were tested in 2 first-stage trials in comparison with standard cultivars. One trial was at the National Fruit Trials Experimental Horticulture Station at Faversham, UK, and the other at the Scottish Crop Research Institute. Data are tabulated on growth, fruit yields, ripening season and other cultivar characteristics. Selection 7210/204 (since released as Glen Moy) performed well, as did 7515C5, which is to be released as Glen Lyon. Selections 3650/3 and 3650/6 ripened later than the late Joy but suffered from cane fasciation. The latter of these selections is to be released under the name Augusta.
