Where to store plant variety information?

Is there a best practice to add plant varieties? I am adding observations of heirloom fruit trees varieties. I think it is an important “biodiversity information” to be recorded and I am wondering which is the best place to store it within an observation. Normally they are common local names such as “Grossa Piacentina”.
Thank you!

There are a few “observation fields” already related to variety. You can access that feature in the lower right area of the observation page. Just type in “var” at first and it should pop up some choices. Pick one you like and then in future entries the popup will prioritize your choice for later entries on other observations. Very handy!

There’s also “cultivar” (exclusive to named plant breeds) if “variety” isn’t giving you good results.
