Comments

'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.
