GOOD SHELF LIFE AND INTERIOR QUALITY

Seedling vigour is significantly superior to that of standard varieties. Plants are vigorous with indeterminate vines. The yield potential is very good, generally being much higher than standard varieties. Barnacle Bill is widely adapted and the overall vigour of this variety tends to make it less susceptible to diseases. The fruit are slightly larger than Chicago Warted Hubbard, averaging a weight between 7 and 9 kg and 20 % of the fruit are extra-large. The rind is a dark grey-green colour with medium warts. Barnacle Bill’s flesh is deep yellow in colour, dry and thick. The taste is sweet and nutty. Holding ability and shelf life are superior to standard varieties.
