'Toro' highbush blueberry

Fruit Varieties Journal 49(2): 99-100
'Toro' highbush blueberry
This midseason, tetraploid, highbush Vaccinium corymbosum cultivar, derived from the cross Earliblue x Ivanhoe, ripens at a similar time to Bluecrop in New Jersey (July). Toro has good fresh fruit flavour and retains good fruit colour throughout the fruiting season. Plants are strong and upright. Respective yields of Toro in 1988, 1989 and 1990 averaged 7.3, 11.4 and 5.1 kg/ha, with three pickings securing 89.4, 99.6 and 85% of the total yield.
