* IMPORTANT:  Trait rating scores provide key information useful in selecting and managing products in your area. Information and ratings are based on comparisons with other products sold by Curry. Information and scores are assigned by Curry and are based on period of years testing through 2012 harvest and were the latest available at the time of printing. Some scores may change after 2013 harvest. Scores represent an average of performance data across areas of adaptation, multiple growing conditions, and a wide range of both climate and soil types, and may not predict future results. Individual products responses are variable and subject to a variety of environmental, disease and pest pressures. Please use this information as only one component of your product positioning decision.
