Origin & Breeding History: 'CNJ97-105-4' resulted from the cross made in 1997 at Rutgers University, Chatsworth, New Jersey with 'LeMunyon' as the seed parent and selection '#35' as the pollen parent. A single plant was selected in 1999 based on the following selection criteria: yield, fruit rot susceptibility, scald, stolon and upright vigour, total anthocyanin content of the fruit, soluble solids (Brix) of the fruit and titratable acidity of the fruit.
Tests & Trials: Trials were conducted at the Mayberry Cranberry Co. Farm, Richmond, British Columbia in 2009 and 2010. Plots/mats consisted of 24 plants in a 4.3 ft. x 4.3 ft. area. Plots were spaced 0.2 meters apart. There were 3 replicates arranged in a RCB design.
