Notes

 

Samba® is a beautiful variety with excellent potential.  
It has strong bloom but sets only light to medium crops of excellent quality fruit which is extremely well received.  
We suspect poor pollination or extremely early frost susceptibility may be the reason.  
It appears that Bigalise® may be a good pollen donor.
