Tundra lives up to its name, as the plants have extreme tolerance to cold climate conditions. The plants grow vigorously and will grow to a mature height of 6.5 feet within a few years. Tundra is considered to be the best cultivar for the commercial grower. The fruits have the excellent firmness with a small dry stem scar, and can be harvested mechanically with a blueberry harvester.
The fruits are large compared to other cultivars with the average fruit weighing 1.5 grams, similar to a medium size blueberry. The firm fruits will melt as they are eaten and are highly aromatic, black raspberry sweetness with a blueberry tang. The fruits shape, light blue color, and size are very attractive for fresh markets and well suited for Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) for the process markets.
