Royal Royce

Bred by: University of California, Davis

UCD Royal Royce produces exceptionally high yields of marketable fruit and significantly fewer runners than most day-neutral cultivars, which translates into lower costs of production and increased profits for fruit growers. This cultivar consistently delivers large fruit throughout the growing season with especially high yields late in the growing season.

  • Exceptionally high yields of marketable fruit
  • Consistently produces large visually appealing fruit over a long growing season
  • Produces fewer runners in berry production, resulting in lower production costs
  • Long shelf life fruit with good flavour and sugar-acid balance

Developed at the University of California, Davis, this day-neutral cultivar was named in honour of Royce S. Bringhurst, a pioneering plant geneticist and strawberry breeder at UCD. This cultivar was selected for production in coastal California and diverse Mediterranean climates.

The fruits are sweet with a good sugar-acid balance, resistant to harvest and handling damage, and have a long shelf life.
