‘Gideon’ (C. mollissima) is a G. Miller selection (72-283) from the same seedlot that derived ‘Amy’ and ‘Peach’ (i.e., its mother was acquired from Ackerman Nursery, Bridgman, MI, in 1957). ‘Gideon’ has been a consistent bearer compared with most other C. mollissima trialed in Carrollton, OH, and its offspring have been consistently superior. The cultivar ripens during mid-season, slightly later than ‘Peach’. Its nuts (12–18 g) have a uniformly shape and are appealing (Miller, 2003).
