A new ever-bearing variety from H.R.I. East Malling. From a cross between Rapella and Selva. Tango is unique in that it typically produces the bulk of its crop during the mid-July to mid-August period, significantly earlier than all other ever-bearing varieties. The cropping then continues with a small yield until late in the year. Tango has consistently outyielded all ever-bearing and day neutral varieties in trials and is at least 50% higher yielding than Rapella! Fruit size is also superior with 45% of the yield as large class 1 fruits. The fruits are an attractive orange-red with a good conical shape, they have a good tangy flavour and are nicely firm. The plants are compact and should be planted close in the row than normal, just 12" or 14” apart in the row. The plants have some resistance to Red Core and Verticillum Wilt.
