"An extremely dwarf English variety. Low growing, stubby plants with ridged, wide dark green leaves. Maturity mid-season. Small globular fruits seldom attain a size more than 1 1/2 inches in diameter, grouped mainly up the main stem almost completely hidden. The mass of clusters is very tight together, similar to grapes. Light red fruits are very solid, mild in flavor and keep long after ripe. Puck possesses a notable characteristic of being able to set fruit in very cold temperatures."
