AURORA
Michigan ppaf

  1. Highbush type cultivar.
  2. Height of plants appears to be 4-5 feet tall at maturity and spreading
    more than upright.
  3. Ripening date is September 3 in South Haven, Michigan, approximately days later than Elliott.
  4. Yields appear to be good on young plants that are being tested.  Harvests could be similar to that of Elliott.
  5. Fruit size is medium, approximately 75 berries per cup.
  6. Berry quality is firm with a small dry picking scar.  Of the first berries to harvest, 50% are light powder blue.  As the later fruits ripen the fruits will change more to a dark blue.  The flavor of the early ripening fruits are more acid with little sweetness, as the season progresses fruits have more sweetness with little acid. The fruits are of high quality and are know to store for long periods.
  7. Harvesting by hand is recommended, as mechanical harvesting is not yet known due to the plants spreading habit.
  8. Markets for fruit would be fresh in most North American growing areas because of the late ripening fruits.
  9. The variety will be a good alternative for late ripening fruits.  Disease resistant is unknown.
