Cargo

Cargo

Cargo is a mid/late season Northern Highbush blueberry variety bred by Fall’s Creek in the USA in 2005. It is high yielding and very vigorous producing tall canes that need trellising as the canes tend to bend with the weight of the fruit. In trials Cargo produced nearly 7Kg / plant equivalent to over 10 MT / acres with 3’ by 10’ spacing. The fruit are firm and slightly tart with excellent storage qualities. We believe this variety has huge potential in Ireland.
