Plants are particularly well suited to an evergreen system in the southernmost production regions in Florida, with yields far exceeding the current evergreen varietal alternatives. Plants produce firm, high quality fruit with a small, dry picking scar. Fruit of ‘FL06-203’ is only medium-sized and may become smaller as the season progresses.
