New Hanover®

The New Hanover® cultivar was developed by Jim Ballington for the University of North Carolina. New Hanover® is a mid-season variety requiring 500-600 hours of chilling. It produces remarkably high yields, but that is not its only advantage: the quality of its fruit is also excellent, both in terms of firmness, size and flavour, and shelf life is very good. Hand harvesting is recommended for this variety.
