Incredible season with an unususal cold start followed by high insect numbers causing significant loses of early season fruit. The heat that came in December lasted well into March with record hot days and nights causing sigificant cavititation and fruit abortion. Yields were well back this season and Sicot 754B3F certainly looked the best in the trial and coped with the heat alot better than other varieties.
