Zero Chill

JupiterBlue® ‘FCM12-131’

JupiterBlue® ‘FCM12-131’ is one of the earliest ripening varieties from the Fall Creek® Collection in Zero Chill production regions. The berries are medium-sized and slightly flat, with a firm, meaty texture, and a lightly acidic flavor.

This variety fruits primarily from primocane buds under Zero Chill conditions and floricane buds in low chill regions. Although self-fertile, cross-pollination is highly recommended to ensure maximum fruit size and will reduce the percentage of retained corollas. JupiterBlue® ‘FCM12-131’ has a competitive yield of highly attractive berries during the early marketing window. Caution must be taken to properly manage JupiterBlue® ‘FCM12-131’ as it is sensitive to fungal and bacterial diseases and poor nutrient management.

“JupiterBlue® 'FCM12-131' is the earliest ripening variety in the zero chill program of the Fall Creek® Collection. It has a complex flavor with medium acidity and a perfect scar. The bush is usually half the size of a Biloxi—possibly even smaller—with a competitive yield during fall. ”
