Cargo produces monstrous quantities of flower buds. With proper pruning and the right soil amendment, Cargo is extremely productive and the fruit quality is better than any other late-season variety available today. The quality of the fruit holds up well in cold storage, having very good firmness and crunch. The shelf life of Cargo in cold storage is incredibly long.
