Colibri®

Colibri® is an early-season Southern Highbush with very low chilling needs of about 200 hours. It produces large quantities of pollen and is self-fertile. The overall quality of its fruit is excellent. The berries have a neat stem scar and their Brix-to-acid ratio is high. Fruit are considered to be of a good size (between 2.5 and 3 grams per berry) and conserve their light blue bloom after harvest. The upright shape of the plant and its spread-out fruit make for easy picking. Half of its fruit are generally picked before the Star variety bears fruit. Three stages of harvested are generally required.
