Origin & Breeding History: 'V92131' arose as a single selection from the cross of 'V68051' and 'V790737' conducted in 1992 at the Horticultural Research Institute of Ontario, Vineland Station, Ontario. Selection criteria included fruit size, flesh colour and eating quality.
Tests & Trials: Trials for 'V92131' were conducted at the University of Guelph, Department of Plant Agriculture, Vineland Campus during the 2010 to 2012 growing seasons. Trees were planted in 1995 on 'Bailey' rootstocks. Spacing between trees was 4 metres in the row and 5.5 metres between rows.
