Bred at East Malling Research this variety is the first to incorporate the highly promising trait of ‘extended dormancy’, remaining dormant until mid-May.Ordering Information
Judibell has a 50% pick date up to 20 days later than Florence and produces large, conic-shaped berries with a good mid-red colour and acceptable flavour.
It is sweeter than Elsanta but somewhat softer and with poor shelf life. Judibell is resistant to both Verticillium Wilt and to Crown Rot but it has some susceptibility to Powdery Mildew.
The variety stands up well to wet weather but care must be taken to control late attacks of Blossom Weevil. Sensitive to Dow Shield.
