New blueberry variety for high chill regions

With yields reported in excess of 20 tonnes per hectare, Global Plant Genetics is getting great interest from international contacts for licenses. Titanium grows extremely well in substrate production being a semi erect and relatively compact plant.

Titanium fruits approximately only one week later than Duke producing berries 17-20 mm in diameter. This variety has more vigour than its comparison, Draper. It is an ideal candidate for premium growing soils or container growing.

"It is an exciting time for Titanium. It has been spread far enough around the globe that growers are really getting a good look at it. Growers from the United States are constantly complimenting the fruit quality. With that said, Titanium has several unique attributes that sets it apart. My personal favourites are the exceptionally firm berries and long storage life of the fruit. In addition, the fruit is extremely consistent in size and flavour which makes it ideal for fresh market. Even the plant is well balanced for most growers who desire an extremely upright growing structure. This year, internationally, Titanium will have its first harvest. We are excited to watch the fruit enter the market", said Doug McCann of Oregon Blueberry Farms and Nursery.
