Good question! I have been working for a LONG time to get all of the fruit inventories ready for the web. However my efforts have been confounded by numerous obstacles (which I won't detail here). It is my hope that everything will be ready by the end of this year. I will send an annoucement to this list serve when the time comes. Thanks.

Margie,
At the website of the Canadian Clonal Genebank, I found a chart of 
apples included in your collection,
http://res2.agr.ca/harrow/ccg/chart99.htm .
Is there a similar online chart for other fruit?

released in 1957 from the highly successful breeding program at the 
Vancouver Research Station. Of these, only Aggasiz is in the Genebank 
as well as more modern ones from British Columbia and other parts of 
Canada.  The Genebank also has a very large holding of indigenous 
Fagaria chiloensis collected from the BC coast and all the way up the 
Queen Charlotte Islands. F. chiloensis (the Pacific Coast strawberry) 
has a geographical distribution from Chile to Alaska.

your request. I need your regular mailing address. The plants will be 
propagated and shipped next year.
