Jubilee Red

Breeder:
Paul Ecke Ranch
Summary:
The important feature of Jubilee was that plants flowered exactly between Prestige Early Red and Prestige Red at NCSU – as intended. In UF studies, Jubilee has shown to be potentially important in the warmest production areas as a replacement for Freedom Red because it has stronger stems and does not stretch as much. Also, in hot, “heat delay” conditions Jubilee flowers with Freedom and is not delayed like Prestige Early. Compared to Freedom Red bracts are slightly smaller have a medium red color. The younger bracts tend to lay flat while the older bracts hang down, producing the ball of red effect. Plants have medium vigor with uniform branching and shoot growth. In post-production, Jubilee is similar to Freedom and may show physical rubbing injury (“bruising”) and youngest bracts can fade if plants are shipped too early. Jubilee should work well in a variety of container sizes.
