Gold Nugget patent
« on: December 16, 2018, 02:36:52 PM »
Hello.

I thought Gold Nugget mandarin was still patented as it is said on;
https://www.fourwindsgrowers.com/products/copy-of-gold-nugget-mandarin-patented

But on Google patents, Tango page;
https://patents.google.com/patent/US20070056064

it says;
Quote
Recently released mid to late season cultivars that are very low-seeded include ‘Gold Nugget’ (unpatented), ‘TDE2’ mandarin hybrid (Shasta Gold®) having U.S. Plant Pat. No. 15,461, ‘TDE3’ mandarin hybrid (Tahoe Gold®) having U.S. Plant Pat. No. 15,703, and ‘TDE4’ mandarin hybrid (Yosemite Gold®), having U.S. Publication No. 2003/0237120. ‘

And the patent search there doesn't list any patent for Gold Nugget, despite listed varieties such as; tango, TD3, Daisy

Is there a better source than Google patents to check patents?

Best.

Looks like in Europe it is protected until 2040.

I got excited suddenly when I read the "unpatented" term on google patent page but it seems google is not the best place to search for patents, right?  ;D
