Jive is a late June bearer with large, firm, very shiny orange-red fruit. The well-shaped, attractive berries are striking for a late variety. They ripen slowly and their harvest period is on average 7 to 10 days later than that of Elsanta. The plant is compact and robust, with a heavy, extensive root system and foliage of a conspicuous dark green colour. It produces only few runners, which means that most of the plant’s energy is directly available for the berries and flower trusses.
