'Pam' was released and patented by Ison's Nursery in 1991. Plant patent #5823, Dec. 9, 1986 The listed pedigree is '5-11-3' x 'Senoia'.
'Pam' is another of the large fruited, bronze, female cultivars from Ison's Nursery. 'Pam' seemed to have less fruit rot than many bronze cultivars, but berries lacked sweetness.
Productivity was okay for a female cultivar, but not great, and in some years was quite low. I don't think there are enough good traits for 'Pam' to overcome its uneven productivity and low sweetness and I don't recommend it for planting.
