Default determinate blacks 2017

So this past season I had three determinate black lines to grow out: the Black Nipper cherry F5, the black-Beta Sundog F4 and the F3 of a determinate selection from the Rodney line.

Due to space limitations, I grew only two Sundogs and two Black Nippers, but I decided to grow ten of the Rodney F3's to select for fruit size as well as taste and growth habit. So this was a new experience for me, having to evaluate ten very similar fruit. Very grateful to my taste testing crew for their help.

This is what my taste table looked like:
