From Dr. Courtney Weber’s breeding program at Cornell University.  Information from Cornell trials indicates Dickens produces large, firm fruit that ripen in late mid-season starting at the end of the Jewel season and continuing for 10 days after Jewel.  The fruit has a short conic shape and produces multiple fruiting laterals.  This variety fruits to a good sweet flavor with a bright red skin color and red interior.  Productivity has been very good in trials exceeding Jewel and Winona, with larger average fruit size.  In trials in Ontario, Dickens showed good Phytophthora root rot resistance in replant sites and good vigor through renovation.

I am a bit prejudiced since my name IS Dicken, but these plants went in easy and grew fast. I will let them bear some fruit this June, though planted the first week of May. They are already large enough, to produce some berries, though I am sure I should pinch all the berries off, and make them grow, but I want to see what they taste like, then I will start pruning...
Love this Dicken Variety for Mid June berries.
