A very early maturing, moderately tall, long-grain variety, California Belle (NFD69), and a very early maturing, short, pearl variety, Calpearl (NFD62C), were derived from the crosses CI11032 X Bluebelle F6 and Cal.76 X (Earlirose X IR1318-16++) F6, respectively. In trials, Calpearl was in the highest yield class and had significantly higher yield (>10%) than all control varieties. California Belle was in the second yield class.
