NOTES: 

Rose Bright is a new release that ripens in the Rose Diamond time slot that is very LARGE, FIRM, and shiny, smooth red with very limited freckling. It stayed firm a week beyond Rose Diamond and is cosmetically superior. At the original selection sight in the breeding grounds, 75% of the fruit would not go through a 56 ring with a few 42’s. Also, like Rose Diamond, only a few split pits were observed.
