'Early Fry' was released and patented by Ison's Nursery in 1993. Plant patent #9225, Aug. 1, 1995. The listed pedigree is 'Sweet Jenny' x 'Ison'.
'Early Fry' was a good performer in our trials. 'Early Fry' had good yields, especially for a female variety, early harvest, large size, and high soluble solids.
The only limitations of this cultivar are that it has female flowers and will require a pollinator and that the fruit can have a dull, unattractive appearance. We recommend this cultivar because it is very large and early with a good flavor.
