Osorno is a fairly recent entry to the market that provides an alternative to Draper and Bluecrop. The variety has a better fruit profile than alternatives but is not as winter hardy due to its parentage, Legacy and Draper. With proper pruning, the bush will lend itself to mechanical harvest. Initial studies suggest that its heat tolerance is superior to Draper.
