Because of the large flower heads the picking rate is very high. Haidegg 13 ripens slightly earlier than the main variety 'Haschberg'. This extends the otherwise very dense harvest period. Because of the strong growth the cultivation is possible on poor soils, which are too weak for 'Haschberg'. Sun scald occurs on the berries in years with high solar radiation.
