North Carolina Agriculture Research Station 

  1. Highbush type cultivar.
  2. The plants are of standard height of 5-6 feet at maturity, and very upright, with good vigor.  Plants are resistant to stem blight disease (Botryosphaena dothidia).
  3. Ripening is slightly later than Legacy, mid august in Grand Junction, Michigan.
  4. Yields in Chattsworth, New Jersey in 2006, seem to be 15 pounds per plant, and have been consistent in prior years, compared to other named cultivars.
  5. Fruit size is consistently medium to mostly large and very attractive.
  6. Fruits have excellent firmness, and insignificant stem scars.  Stems do not adhere to the berry and premature cracking of the fruits are not apparent.  The fruits also appear to have resistance to anthracnose fruit rot, (Colletutrichum spp.)  Fruits exhibit a long shelf life of storage.
  7. Harvesting is done by hand, although the plants will lend itself to mechanical harvesting for fresh marketing of the large firm fruits.
  8. Marketing should be for the fresh markets, because of the fruits fine flavor, firmness and appearance.
  9. The variety is an excellent choice for growers in California and the Pacific Northwest because the plant is 100% adapted for mechanical harvesting of fruit for packaging for the fresh market.
