Formerly known as C225, this is a Moderate to High vigorous plant but smaller plant size than compared to Ventana, with similar production pattern. “Benicia” offers a slightly larger, firmer berry with good flavor and a darker more even Interior color. It is disease resistant although is susceptible to Verticillium wilt, which will require more care from the grower in order to cultivate this variety successfully. Productivity is superior to that of Ventana.
