This needs to be taken into consideration when planning planting schedules under different growing conditions. STAR 9082 is classed as a medium cycle variety that produces over six to eight months.
STAR 9082 has an open plant habit that enables ease of spraying and picking. Plant development is vigorous and very fast to the top of the trellising structure.
