Heat tolerance is excellent. Tupy requires a normally chill of about 200 hours, but can be reduced. Some researches shows, that the cultivation of Tupy in mild winter regions (for example - subtropical areas) allows the harvest before the traditional harvesting period. This has an important market impact because it makes commercialization of fresh berries possible during periods of lower supply.
