Origin & Breeding History: 'Fisco Swered' whose experimental number is Fisco 503, was derived from a hybridization made during 2000 in Hillscheid, Germany between the female parent variety 'Petticoat Red Star' and the male parent variety 'Harmony Raspberry Cream'. One seedling was selected in the spring of 2001 in Mancarapacho, Portugal from the seed shipped there, based on early beginning of flowering, compact to rounded growth habit, and flower colour.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, CPVO reference number 20050932, application number IM 960, grant number 17007, purchased from the CPVO, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2005.
