Malling™ Opal, Strawberry

Malling TM 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 TM Opal was selected on the basis of its supperior 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 TM 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.
