Variety Brief
Floricane – Late summer variety that closes the gap before primocane varieties begin. The fruit is large and generally round shaped and light red. Suitable for fresh market. The canes are semi-spineless with good resistance (in the IUS) to aphids and cane botrytis. It is susceptible to Phytophthora root rot in cold wet soils but performs well in Coir bag hydroponic culture.
