AbstractShoot development and fruit development in the cv. Olympus were examined at 2 sites, one in Washington and the other in Oregon. It differed from conventional cvs in its marked crown-branching habit, and showed early and vigorous vegetative growth and a high number of flowers/inflorescence. Analysis of yield components indicated a yield potential of about 19 t/acre but there was a tendency for flower failure or fruit malformation in the primary and secondary ranks of the inflorescence. Plants in Oregon showed much greater development of secondary inflorescences than those in Washington.
