Description: Arcadia™ ‘FL07-399’ is a new mid-season variety best adapted to production regions similar to central and south-central Florida. Plants produce high berry yields when grown in an evergreen management system, and the peak of production (in central and south-central Florida) aligns well with the high-value market window. Plants survive well in the field and have a high tolerance to leaf diseases. Lower yields in northern production regions, combined with a spreading growth habit and less-than-optimal fruit firmness, will make machine harvesting this variety very difficult.
