By putting it in cold storage after harvest, grower-shippers can offer it to retailers through the Christmas holiday season.

 

  • Ruby seedless: August-December. One of the later varieties, ruby seedless — also known as king ruby — produces medium-sized, red, oval seedless berries.

It also can be put in cold storage after harvest for holiday sales.

 

  • Autumn king: September-December. This green variety produces very large, cylindrical to oval seedless berries.

It is one of the later varieties, coming in typically after Labor Day.

 

  • Vintage red: September-December. Large red, oval to elongated seedless berries are typical of vintage red. It has a very sweet flavor.
