Prize has a moderate canopy making it suitable for substrate production with good results achieved at 7-8 plants per linear metre plant density or up to 44,000 per ha in the soil. 

Fruit is typically held on strong trusses that remain upright during the early stages of fruit development. 

Prize has been shown to over winter well across a wide geographical growing area the variety seems to be reasonably tolerant to Phytopthra and Wilt but is not resistant to these diseases.  Mildew is rarely a problem with Prize and if seen usually appears on the fruit before leaves become symptomatic.  Large well formed light coloured conic berries are typical with acceptable flavour and excellant shelf life.  Yields of 1.1kgs per plant have been reported with an average of 900gms per plant being normal.
