A new yellow gerbera (Gerbera hybrida Hort.) cultivar “Golden Time” was developed from a cross between ‘99-ga-2’ and ‘99-na-7-6’, followed by seedling and line selections at the Flower Research Institute, Gyeongnam Agricultural Research and Extension Services (ARES) in 2007. Detailed characteristics of the new cultivar were evaluated from 2004 to 2007. “Golden Time” has semi-double type large flowers in a good harmony with yellow (RHS, 17-B) ray floret and brown center. It has good, stable flower shape and strong peduncles, and its vase life was 12.3 days. The average flower yield of “Golden Time” was about 49.5 stems per plant/year in greenhouse trails during 2004 and 2007. This cultivar was registered to the Korea Seed and Variety Service (KSVS) for commercialization in 2009. Year-round production of this cultivar is possible in the greenhouse condition throughout the Korean climate.
