My field value: (BC82-5-84 x Tulameen) A mid-season processing and fresh market berry that produces attractive dark berries with some resistance to fruit rot. The fruit is easy to harvest and in growers' trials has machine harvested well. The fruit is glossy, large, firm, perfect in shape with fine drupelets, and so is very suitable for IQF. It is not resistant to RBVD, but appears to have a slow rate of infection.
