 Agronomics

Admiral is a high yielding, high alpha variety that matures mid-season and so complements Target in terms of the picking regime. It grows vigorously, producing small, compact cones, which pick well on the machine. It has a question mark over it in terms of Wilt tolerance and is susceptible to powdery mildew, however it is resistant to downy mildew.
