A superb new late season variety from the Scottish Crop Research Institute. Every now and again we have had the pleasure to introduce a new variety that is just that 'extra' special. Rhapsody is just such a a variety, a name that will give you pleasure for many years to come. Raised from a cross between 61G5 (Talisam x Cambridge Vigour) and Cambridge Favourite. The season is late with a 50% pick date some 10 days after Cambridge Favourite. In ministry trials, Rhapsody has had a consistent record of very good health including resistance to Red Core. The yield has been very heavy, consistently outyielding Cambridge Favourite, often by a considerable margin. Plant habit is attractive with characteristic pale green crinkled foliage that is erect to display the fruit well. The medium to large sized fruits are attractive glossy red, long conical in shape with a solid juicy, mouth-watering red flesh. The flavour is superb. Without any doubt Rhapsody has inherited and even improved upon the wonderful flavour of its grandparents Vigour and Talisman. Recommended by the Ministry of Agriculture National Fruit Trials as a new late season variety with high yields, improved quality and better disease resistance. Rhapsody is a must for every connoisseur of flavour. Very highly recommended.
