Cambridge Favourite


Cambridge Favourite, Strawberry

Bred in 1938 and nursed through the war as a numbered seeding, Cambridge Favourite became the most widely grown variety in the 1960’s.

Excellent disease resistance and a vigorous free runnering habit makes this an easily grown variety that crops heavily and reliably under a wide range of conditions.

The medium sized fruit hangs well on the plant but is too soft to stand much travelling. Still unsurpassed as a processing variety and valued by the PYO customer.
