Crossbreeding between cranberries (Vaccinium macrocarpon Ait.) and cowberries (Vaccinium vitis idaea L.)


, : Crossbreeding between cranberries (Vaccinium macrocarpon Ait.) and cowberries (Vaccinium vitis idaea L.). Acta Horticulturae 61: 285-294

In crosses made in 1973, 59.13% and 2.6% fruit set was obtained from the cross V. vitis-idaea X Oxycoccus macrocarpus and its reciprocal respectively. A similar result was obtained form crosses made in 1972. The hybrids resembled one or other of the parents. No seed was obtained following self pollination or in the back crosses. In crosses made in 1975, 13% and 18.75% fruit set was obtained from the cross O. macrocarpus 'Stevens' X O. palustris (4x) and O. palustris (4x) X O. macrocarpus 'Pilgrim' respectively.

To increase the genetic resources of lingonberry and cranberry, intersectional hybrids were generated with the Hawaiian species V. reticulatum. Pollinations were only successful with V. reticulatum as the female parent. Hybrids with lingonberry (c...
