AtlasBlue®, a Fall Creek release, was named for its vigorous, upright growth habit, exceptional yields, and high-quality fruit. Selected for its performance in evergreening production systems, it ripens in the same time frame as ‘Biloxi’ and ‘Ventura’, but has a much more concentrated ripening period. Berries are medium to large sized, uniform, and medium-dark blue. Scars on floricane fruit are medium and dry, though primocane fruit can have somewhat larger scars. If fruit is allowed to ripen fully, it develops a very aromatic flavor. In our tests, the storage life and firmness were impressive. Additionally, cross-pollination may be necessary to ensure maximum fruit size, more than in the case of BiancaBlue®. This variety fruits primarily from floricane buds.
