The very late variety from HRI East Malling. In trails, Pandora has cropped from mid-July to mid-August, up to 17 days later than Cambridge Favourite and is the latest cropping of normal season varieties. Pandora is the only strawberry variety to require a pollinator so do not grow this variety on its own. It is worth noting that younger plants can sometimes crop earlier than expected in the maiden year. Growth is vigorous so slightly wider spacing is beneficial. The fruits are large, bright orange-red and conical in shape, good juicy texture and a very pleasant flavour. Disease resistance is good, especially to Verticilliun Wilt and Mildew. Pandora has proved to be very heavy cropping with a large percentage as class 1 fruits. Many mid-late season varieties will pollinate but we would suggest Pegasus an an ideal pollinator.
