Manille - Strawberry Varieties

Manille

Parentage
Manille was raised from a cross between Gariguette and a Marionnet numbered selection, which included Mara des Bois in its pedigree.

Season
Manille is an early/mid-season season cultivar.

Fruit Quality
The berries are short conical in shape, medium red to carmine in colour and have a very glossy skin finish. The flavour is sweet with high sugar and low acidity levels, and berries have a distinctive aroma. The berries are firm, do not bruise easily and shelf-life is good.

Yield
Manille has a high yield potential, producing 0.7-1kg per plant with cold-stored plants and 0.6kg/plant with fresh plants.

Plant Characteristics
Plants are moderately vigorous with an upright/spreading habit. Runner production is prolific. The fruit is well displayed to pickers and is easy to harvest.

Disease Resistance
Manille has excellent resistance to powdery mildew (Sphaerotheca macularis) on both foliage and fruit. Manille has good tolerance to wilt (Verticillium dahliae), crown rot (Phytophthora cactorum) and red core (P. fragariae).
