Origin & Breeding History: 'BC922085' is the result of a cross made in 1992 between 'Cavendish' and 'Nanaimo' at the Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre, Abbotsford substation, British Columbia. The selection criteria used were fruit appearance, taste, flesh texture, harvest timing, plant quality, productivity, precocity, and disease resistance.
Tests & Trials: Trials for 'BC922085' were conducted at the Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre, Abbotsford Substation, British Columbia during 2009 and 2010. The trial included 32 plants per variety planted in 4 replication plots. The plant spacing was 0.3 metres between plants and 1.2 metres between the rows.
