Cripps Red prefers a southern climate with long hot summers. It has a slight tendency to become a biennial bearer (fruiting every other year) but this can be readily corrected by thinning the fruitlets in early June to prevent it over-cropping.
This is a low-chill variety, needing only about 300 chill hours per year.
