If you liked Stephens, than you will love the added yield potential of Mary. Although very similar to Stephens’s disease package, Mary has shown increased cold tolerance. As an added bonus, milling and baking evaluations indicate that Mary has overall quality superior to Stephens.
Mary is consistently among the highest yielding varieties in the 16-20 inch and >20 inch precipitation zones in Washington. This 16-18 inch rainfall is also the production sweet spot in Oregon. Mary is a great choice for late seeding dates and should continue to perform well during dry years – both traits credited to its early maturity.
