High quality, mid-season variety with uniform shaped fruits produced in abundance. Deliciously sweet and juicy and lasts well once picked without darkening in colour. Able to stand very hot spells and periods of heavy rain, with far fewer mis-shapen berries during the first and second pickings, making the crop easier and quicker to pick from mid June to late July.

British bred variety with superb over wintering qualities and producing darker brown skinned bulbs than most varieties. Good sized bulbs, skin quality and storage. Harvest from early July. Pack size: 250g when packed, sets size between 17-21mm (approx 50 sets), or 14-21mm (approx 75 sets), dependent on weather, harvesting and grading issues.

A new introduction originating from SW France, in trials performing well from both Autumn and Spring planting.
