Portola* can be used in many growing systems due to its strong flowering response. Plant vigour is stronger than Albion* for which reason the plant density can be lower. The fruits have a similar size then Albion*, are slightly lighter of colour but somewhat less tolerant against rain. The taste is reasonable and consistent throughout the season. Portola* has a good shelf life. Portola* appears to be somewhat susceptible to phytophtora.
