Following the success of the August’s ARRA™ Open Field Days, in this edition we take a closer look at the upcoming varieties that were presented in Bakersfield. The field days focused on two new lines; a line of mid – late varieties and the Muscat line.

The mid – late varieties have a strong characteristic ‘fire’ red color, elongated berry and a consistently high yield.

Code 17A-14+2; Very fertile, naturally red without ethereal. The full vivid color and elongated berry shape give it a most attractive appeal.

New arrivals – the latest generation of Muscats

Go big!

In addition to the lines of mid – late varieties and Muscats, also presented were varieties that are about to be launched including Code 8A-19+4 whose nickname ‘Jumbo’, matches this year’s results.
The improvements in this code’s growing protocol led to impressive results which attracted much attention. At present, this variety is being grown semi-commercially in California and Brazil.

Code 8A-19+4 is a great alternative to Thompson. It ripens together with Thompson which is calling out to be replaced.
