This variety was released by UC Davis and is an early to mid-season day neutral with excellent post harvest qualities. Larger yields over the full season with a 77% higher yield over San Andreas. Reduced runner production in fruiting fields that offers firmness, large fruit and lower acid.
Performs best in fall planted production systems, but performs equally well when harvested with longer chilling hours being grown in high elevation conditions.
Royal Royce is moderately resistant to Verticillium wilt, moderate susceptibility to Phytophthora crown rot and Fusarium wilt, and susceptible to Charcoal rot.
