Willa’s Cariboo Rose – New 2016 release from the Dwarf Project was being tracked as Wilpena, but was discovered to be Pink, instead of red. The person who had led the work on this one was given the option to change the name and selected Willa’s Cariboo Rose. I was blown away at the taste of the pink fruit – clearly 8.5/10. It’s very much like all those pink varieties you just love. So, put this one on the “must grow” list. Fairly large fruit in the 6-8 oz range and visually stunning.
