CULTIVAR DEVELOPMENT AT GCREC-BRADENTON
AND AREC-DOVER
1925-1987

J. P. Jones, W. E. Waters, and E. E. Albregts1

The University of Florida's Gulf Coast Research and Education Center in
Bradenton first originated in 1925 as a tomato disease laboratory. A
tomato variety development program soon was initiated when it became
apparent that it was essential to develop and select varieties adapted to
Florida's subtropical environment for the fledgling industry to survive
and to flourish. Other vegetables were not ignored and breeding programs
on pole beans, peppers, and muskmelon resulted in the release of several
high yielding varieties. In the late 1940's a gladiolus breeding program
was started and aimed at the development of disease-resistant varieties
that were horticulturally adaptable and productive. As other ornamental
crops became commercially important, a full time flower breeder was added
to the faculty in 1969, The flower breeding program was expanded further
to include caladium, gypsophila, orchid, and poinsettia.

The strawberry laboratory in Dover, Florida, where strawberry seedlings
had been evaluated and selected since 1932, became a part of the Gulf
Coast Research and Education Center in 1963. A formal strawberry breeding
program was started in 1969 and conducted by a plant pathologist. The
breeding program was expanded further the summer of 1987 with the
employment of a geneticist-breeder charged with the development of high
yielding, disease-resistant strawberry varieties.

The Gulf Coast Research and Education Center has brought together over the
years a group of scientists from diverse disciplines who, via innovative,
interdisciplinary research, have developed many high yielding, disease-
resistant varieties resulting in the advancement of the vegetable,
strawberry, and flower industries of the state.

Outlined on the following pages is a list of varieties released from these
programs.


1Professor of Plant Pathology, Center Director, and Professor of Soil
Science, respectively.
