“Bushy Chabarovsky” is a Russian variety that has been available in the US since at least 2001. It is easy to grow, reaching between 2 to 2.5 feet high, and more prolific than any other dwarf I have grown, even Aftershock. The fruits are interesting. They are somewhat fuzzy when green, but as they ripen, the texture becomes more of a soft matte rather than woolly, as some varieties are. A ripe Bushy Chabarovsky is velvety and smooth to the fingertips.
At full dark pink ripeness, the fruits are too soft for my taste. I like them best when they are nearly fully ripe, more of the color shown in my photo. The flavor is smooth, sweet, and would be very nice for children to eat. The flesh is smooth and meaty. This is altogether an interesting, tasty, and fun variety to grow.
