‘Stolo’ is a new June-bearing strawberry (Fragaria Xananassa Duchesne ex Rozier) cultivar from the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), Pacific Agri-Food Research Center (PARC) in Agassiz, released in cooperation with the BC Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, U.S. Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service, Washington State University (WSU) Horticultural Research and Development Center, and AAFC sites in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, QC, and Kentville, NS. ‘Stolo’ has been noted for high yields of late-season fruit with excellent quality suitable for both fresh and processing markets, good flavor, and tolerance to root weevil (Otiorhynchus sp.). Its glossy red fruit is primarily suited for the freshmarket. The name ‘Stolo’ follows the PARC tradition of naming cultivars using names in the language of First Nations and comes from the Stolo First Nation residing in the Fraser Valley, BC, where the cultivar was developed and is currently grown. The word Stolo means ‘‘people of the river.’’
