Chickadee™

Chickadee™ has a desirable upright growth habit. Production is advised south of Gainesville, FL due to the

plant's tendency to uproot when bearing heavy ice loads. Flowers very early. The berries are large and firm, almost crisp. Berries ripen extremely early; half of the berries were ripe by April 15 in trials in Windsor, FL. Berries maintain their high-quality for a very long time on the bush. These berries detach with medium to medium-hard force. Chill hour requirement of approximately 100 hours.

Kestrel™

Kestrel™ is noted for its early-ripening, high evergreen potential, and superior berry quality. Fruit ripens very early, and berries remain sweet even as hues of blues emerge. The berry quality is excellent, as the plant produces berries that are plump, firm, and aromatic. They produce medium loose berry clusters with very low berry detachment force.
