BC92641 (Ukee™)

‘Ukee’ is well adapted to both machine harvesting / processing, IQF and the fresh market. This variety has been very slow to become infected with raspberry bushy dwarf virus (RBDV), despite high pressures for a number of years, suggesting moderate tolerance. It is also resistant to Amphorophora agathonica, an aphid vector of the raspberry mosaic virus (RMV) complex and has tested negative to RMV ever since the genotype was selected.
