Malling™ Opal, Strawberry

Malling™ Opal is an 'Everbearer' initiating flowers in the spring and fruiting continuously from July until the first frost.

Bred at EMR (East Malling Research) by Dr. David Simpson, Malling™ Opal was selected on the basis of its superior yield and flavour and its earliness of season. This variety produces large, attractive, conical berries with a particularly good sweet flavour and juicy texture with consistently high Brix levels..

Fruit presentation is excellent and fruit firmness and shelf life are both good. Malling™ Opal is a vigorous early season everbearer cropping heavily in July and August thus providing a continuity of cropping on many units. Malling ™ Opal is moderately resistant to Powdery Mildew and Verticillium Wilt.

Bare root plants are available from late autumn onwards.
