The fruit is squared and medium-sized with good consistency and color. This is a compact plant of average size with good foliage cover. With concentrated and early maturity, the Rio Grande is ideal for mechanical harvesting. This variety has demonstrated an optimum suitability for a variety of areas. It has a strong resistance to Verticillium and fusarium. We recommend very limited use of azote for mechanical harvesting.
