Propagators

Fruit quality

Malling™ Ace has a sweet, juicy flavour and high average Brix of 9.2°. It is very uniform in shape, with conic berries and excellent fruit size. Fruit weight is maintained throughout the whole season.

Production period

Malling™ Ace starts producing fruit in May from the first spring-initiated flowers, with peak production in August. It is a very high yielding variety with yields of up to 1.5 kg/plant of Class 1 fruit.

Growth habit

It has compact plants, with long flower trusses that give excellent fruit display and make picking very easy. Fast picking speeds of up to 40 kg/hr can be achieved in table-top systems. Early trials data suggests the variety works well in lower density plantings (5-6 plants/m).

Disease resistance

Preliminary tests indicate Malling™ Ace has resistance to crown rot (Phytophthora cactorum), but with some susceptibility to powdery mildew.
