Neutral smiln32 On Jan 2, 2005, smiln32 from Oklahoma City, OK (Zone 7a) wrote:

This cultivar is noted for its superior dessert quality. The medium-large berries are very attractive with a glossy, deep-red color. It is one of the best for eating fresh, as a frozen product, and in jams and jellies.

The plants are very vigorous and productive; however, they bloom early and are subject to frost injury. The plants are somewhat disease resistant, also.
