  • Bears big elongated pear-shaped fruits which grow up to 16 mm wide, become tasty, sweet and firm when ripe, display purple black colour and are covered with a waxy bloom – due to which seem to be blue-black – and are gathered in clusters of 7-13; its berries are similar in quality to the ‘Pembina’ berries, but they grow slightly bigger and are resistant to cracking, ripen relatively at the same time in June and are excellent for jams, jellies and fruit cakes, can also be enjoyed raw.
