Its large berries are juicy and sweet with an excellent smoked strawberry flavor. This variety is part of the Blue Moose family. One of the sweetest berry varieties (at this hybridizer) and ideal for fresh, frozen and mixed fruit. It can produce 8 to 10 pounds of fruit per bush after 4 to 5 years of growth (these yields have yet to be validated).
It is a mid-season variety that lends itself well to mechanized harvesting. This variety was developed by Lidia Stuart, living in the far eastern part of Russia. It is considered by many to be the origin of the commercial cherry tree. Mrs. Stuart used varieties from Russia and Japan to develop her cultivars.
