AtlasBlue® ‘FCM12-045’

AtlasBlue® 'FCM12-045', 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 the 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® ‘FCM12-087’. This variety fruits primarily from floricane buds.

“AtlasBlue is a vigorous bush with a high yield potential that naturally produces at the end of winter or early spring. The fruit is medium dark with striped wax and a very fruity flavor.”
