Festivalnaya - high-yielding strawberries or how to grow large berries


To date, breeders have bred just the widest range of strawberry varieties. There are both non-refurbished and refurbished types. The latter include the Festivalnaya strawberry. This strawberry is one of the most popular varieties.

Description

This plant was bred by domestic breeders in the city of Pavlovsk. Festivalnaya strawberry belongs to the universal varieties. The bushes are vigorous and rather compactly collected. The formation of tall and dense leaves is characteristic. Thick peduncles are located at or slightly below the level of the leaves (at the same time, they are sometimes located above the leaves). Inflorescences are sparse and compact. Bisexual flowers are formed on the bush.

This type of strawberry is classified as a medium-ripening variety. However, under certain conditions, this species can bear fruit relatively late. The fruiting period itself is long, thanks to which Festivalnaya strawberries have gained such high popularity, especially among amateur gardeners.

This strawberry has a high yield. Even small berries appear all the time until late autumn. Berries of rather large sizes ripen on strawberry bushes, the mass of which at the first harvest reaches, on average, 45 g, and then may decrease slightly - the minimum mass of fruits for subsequent harvests is 10 g. The fruits are oblong and bright red in color. In addition to the bright and challenging red color, the skin has a slight sheen. The neck is wide and short. Achenes with seeds are located almost on the entire surface of the berries and have a bright red color. The pulp is bright pink in color and occupies an average place in terms of density. The berries have a very pleasant taste.

One berry of the Festivalnaya variety contains sugar (7%), acids (about 1, 4%) and up to about 90 mg of vitamin C. The high resistance of this plant to most diseases and pests is described. Average resistance to powdery mildew is noted, as well as low resistance to verticillary wilt (infection).

Variety characteristics

Festivalnaya strawberry has the following characteristics:

  • ripening time - medium or late;
  • berry color - deep red;
  • fruit taste - sweet and sour;
  • fruit size - from 10 to 45 g;
  • fruiting type - remontant;
  • method of application - universal;
  • winter hardiness is very high.

Due to its characteristics, Festivalnaya strawberry deservedly occupies one of the leading places in terms of prevalence.

Care features

Like all remontant varieties, Festivalnaya requires a certain amount of care so that it can retain all its positive qualities.

This plant is suitable for growing in temperate climates. Most often it can be found in central and central Russia, the Urals, and even in Siberia.

This strawberry can be propagated by seeds, whiskers and rosettes. The optimal time for preparing seedlings for planting for the next year is the last days of November. After harvesting, the seedlings are stored in a dark room throughout the winter. In the spring they are planted on the first warm days. If you did not have time, then you can re-plant only in early autumn, somewhere from mid-August to the end of September. It is impossible to plant in the summer due to the dryness of the soil. For the same reason, planting seedlings is carried out after a good rain. To avoid the formation of an earthen crust, sprinkle the soil near the bush with dry soil or humus.

Before planting, the soil is well fertilized. You need to plant a plant only in a well-lit place. To get an excellent harvest, the first flowers are cut off, leaving a mustache.

After planting, caring for the bushes is reduced to:

  • to abundant and frequent watering;
  • mulching the earth. For these purposes, use straw, lime, roofing material, cut grass;
  • weeding from weeds;
  • fertilizing with fertilizers;
  • spraying bushes from diseases and parasites.

Observing all the above recommendations, you will achieve large, and most importantly, delicious berries from the plant.

Based on the new discoveries of breeders, the following types of remontant berries can be distinguished:

  • small-fruited
  • large-fruited
  • early
  • late

Small-fruited strawberries are considered especially valuable for novice gardeners.... Despite its small size, the berry is very tasty and aromatic. It is easy to propagate and grow it. Does not require special care. It is ideal for weekend summer residents. There are several different berries of different colors with some difference in terms of fruiting.

  • red-fruited - Alexandria, Baron Salemacher, Ruyana
  • white-fruited - Yellow miracle (beardless), Zolotinka.

Small-fruited berries begin to ripen in June... Berry weight up to 5 grams. You can plant white and red strawberries side by side on the same bed. With regard to comparative characteristics, in contrast to reds, white-fruited species are more drought-resistant.

Berry size may vary depending on moisture content. Small, rather than large, watery strawberries are considered the most delicious.

Large-fruited remontant culture appeared on personal plots relatively recently.... Gardeners with experience grow it more often. Unlike small-fruited, it blooms continuously and bears fruit until September. Large berries have a marketable appearance, therefore, they are in demand in the markets. We mainly have berries of domestic and foreign selection:

  • Sakhalin
  • Inexhaustible
  • Hell
  • Red Rich
  • Mahern
  • Herzberg
  • Peik Rova.

Most modern large-fruited strawberry hybrids are genetically programmed for intensive fruiting as an annual crop. The mass of berries reaches 20-30 grams... During transportation, they are practically not damaged. Gardeners note the resistance of large varieties to diseases and pests. The strawberry taste is juicy, sweet, and the aroma is inferior to small-fruited.


Types of strawberries

Remembering strawberries, we immediately see bright, fragrant berries ripening on glades and hills warmed by the sun. But the tasty berry in our beds is the same strawberry, although it is much larger and differs from the forest one in taste.

Garden strawberries are herbaceous bushes with a height of 20 to 40 cm. The color of the fruit ranges from almost white (for example, in the Pineberry variety) to red and cherry. Depending on the nature of fruiting, all varieties are divided into ordinary, remontant and so-called "neutral days". The most common are common, which ripen at the beginning of summer. These varieties are used in agriculture for industrial production.

Repaired and neutral daylight varieties are grown only in private gardens and are also used for scientific purposes.

Plain strawberry

Single-fruiting strawberries are a classic that has been grown in the fields for more than a decade. All varieties of this berry give the main harvest once a summer. But there are many fruits and they are very tasty. Some varieties are able to give a few more berries after a while, but the second harvest has no serious industrial significance.

Ripening time depends on the selected variety... There are both early and super early and late varieties.

Table: common varieties of ordinary strawberries of different ripening periods

A striking representative of this group is the mid-early Asia strawberry. The harvest of this variety ripens in the last decade of May. Long-term storage of berries is convenient for industrial production, so the variety is grown both in open beds and in greenhouses. Asia is adapted to the continental climate, withstands frosts down to -17 o C. The main positive property of the variety is its resistance to spotting.

Alba strawberry ripens very early and is not afraid of frost. The long, bright red berries are easy to store. One bush is capable of producing about 1 kg of fruit per season.

Will delight you with early fruiting Clery, an Italian variety that produces berries 1.5–2 weeks later than Alba. The very sweet berries have a beautiful cherry color. At the same time, the bushes are capricious. To obtain a bountiful harvest, it is advisable to plant them under arcs and cover them with a film.

Yields in May and classic Elsanta. It is considered a reference variety, a sample for selection. Its fruits are large, glossy and very tasty. True, the climate of the middle zone is dangerous for her. Bushes often get sick, do not tolerate waterlogging and drought.

Low compact bushes of the Kama variety begin to bear fruit in mid-May. The first berries weigh up to 60 g, the next ones are already smaller. The berries hide under the leaves, but there are a lot of them - the bush gives up to a kilogram of fruit per season. The bright red ripe strawberries are a little sour, so you need to wait until they are fully ripe.

Remaining strawberries

Repairing strawberry varieties cannot provide such rich harvests as ordinary ones. But the duration of their fruiting allows you to collect delicious fragrant berries before the onset of cold weather, sometimes bushes with ripe fruits go under the snow. Those varieties that bear fruit only 2 times per season give more abundant yields. At the same time, the peak of fruiting falls on the second crop - in August - September.

For your information. Large-fruited strawberries usually bring two to three harvests, and small varieties are able to give berries continuously.

However, remontant strawberries are less strong and durable than regular varieties. After all, repeated or continuous fruiting depletes the plant. The beds with remontant strawberries are renewed from the end of July to the beginning of August, so that the bushes have time to take root by the beginning of autumn.

Table: some varieties of remontant strawberries

Repaired strawberries ripen quite early, and end fruiting in late autumn. It is usually divided into small-fruited and large-fruited.

The small-fruited Dutch variety Baron Solemacher has sprawling bushes with a large number of peduncles. The baron cannot boast of large fruits, but his berries have a strong pleasant aroma. From a bush per season, you can get up to 0.5 kg of fruit.

Ali Baba is a high-yielding variety that gives many small, 3 - 5 g, bright berries. Powerful, but low bushes successfully hibernate, are not afraid of diseases.

The Ruyan variety also bears fruit well. Small bushes, however, produce rather large fruits. Juicy berries smell like wild strawberries. Strawberries easily endure winter, are not afraid of drought, and successfully resist diseases and pests.

Large-fruited include Queen Elizabeth, Moscow delicacy, San Andreas, Albion. One of the most successful varieties is Queen Elizabeth - Queen Elizabeth I. The first ripe berries appear in early June. Strong bushes give very little mustache, but the berries are large, hiding under the foliage. Tasty and fragrant strawberries reach a weight of 40-60 g, and some samples - up to 100 g. The harvest ripens throughout the warm period. Queen Elizabeth I is able to treat strawberries even on New Year's holidays if grown in a greenhouse.

On a note. There are two types of Queen Elizabeth variety: Queen Elizabeth I and Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen Elizabeth II variety appeared later and differs in larger berries.

From mid-May until the beginning of frost, the Albion variety bred in America bears fruit. Bushes withstand weather changes well, successfully resist most diseases. Large, dark red, conical fruits, sweet and aromatic. By autumn, the dense pulp acquires a honey sweetness. The fruits tolerate transportation successfully, therefore they are often used for industrial cultivation.

Fruiting from May until the onset of frost hybrid variety Temptation. Its fruits weigh up to 30 g, have an original nutmeg flavor and are very beautiful. The bushes are used for decorative purposes.

Juicy sweet berries of the Clery variety acquire a cherry color when fully ripe. Large berries, delicately smelling of strawberries, reach a weight of 40 g. Bushes are strong, spreading, with a lot of whiskers. Clery strawberries ripen in mid-May. It is distinguished by resistance to frost and drought, with good feeding it almost does not get sick.

Strawberry "neutral day" - a kind of remontant

Strawberries with neutral daylight hours have a bright future. In those places where the day is short, there is little heat and sun, such strawberries are indispensable. Like the remontant, it is able to bloom and bear fruit all year round, if the bushes are moved to a heated greenhouse in cold weather. The difference between these two types is as follows. In remontant varieties, the formation of flower buds occurs several times per season, and in varieties of neutral daylight hours - continuously. Therefore, remontant strawberries bear fruit from 2 to 4 times a season (depending on the variety), and strawberries of a neutral day yield constantly. Here are some examples of these varieties:

  • Queen Elizabeth II
  • Felice
  • Aisha.

Queen Elizabeth II (Lisa). Fragrant sweet berries with firm pulp are round or conical. The bushes produce few whiskers, which makes it easier to care for the plants. But Elizabeth II requires abundant timely watering. An additional plus is that the plant practically does not suffer from fungal diseases.

The first ripe berries appear at the end of May, and fruiting continues until the very frost. At the same time, one bush is capable of producing up to 1.5 kg of harvest. They can be planted frequently, up to 6 per square meter.

The Felicia variety is native to Turkey. Shrubs with glossy dark green leaves bloom with beautiful crimson flowers. The fruits are small but sweet and tender. The bushes bloom and bear fruit at the same time. The plant gives little whiskers, which facilitates care. Beautiful bushes can be used for decorative purposes.

Another successful variety from Turkey is Aisha. A large bush with bright green leaves gives a lot of whiskers that immediately begin to bloom. Large conical berries are fragrant and tasty. Fruiting continuously throughout the warm season, with the exception of 2 weeks after the first harvest. The variety is good because the bushes show immunity to diseases, and the berries successfully tolerate transportation.

Varieties of "neutral day" require special care, because the constant formation of berries greatly depletes the bushes. They cannot do without regular fertilization and timely watering.


The line of varieties of the "Vima" series - from the Dutch agricultural firm

Late strawberry Vima Ksima is a product of the Dutch selection, from the Vima series. It is famous for its gigantic fruit size - an average of 80-90 grams, from the second year of fruiting. The berries are round-conical, dense. The color is deep red, the seeds are depressed. The taste is sweet, with a slight sourness. High solids content, but no crunch expected with such a dense structure. The pulp is tender, pinkish. The bush is medium in size and foliage, the peduncles are raised above the greenery. Excellent immunity to viral diseases. Good transportability. Bears fruit for 4 years.

It is similar in basic characteristics, but with an earlier fruiting period, such are the reviews of Vima Zant strawberries from the same Vima series from the Netherlands. In terms of weight, they are slightly behind (on average 45 g), otherwise they correspond to the declared originators of yield, keeping quality, transportability.

Late Vicoda is a supergiant among berries

Strawberry Vicoda begins to bear fruit in the third decade of July.Its huge fruits, with skillful agricultural technology, reach 120 grams of weight. Most often, the average size of the berries is 50-70 g, which gives reason to bring the species to the segment of giants. In shape, the fruit resembles a juicy ribbed comb. The pulp does not contain voids, tender, white-pink. Original flavor of cherry and pineapple. The bush is of considerable size, the leaves are light green, slightly wrinkled.

Strawberry varieties from Holland for Russian connoisseurs of taste

Another representative of the Dutch species is the Lambada strawberry, bred in the nineties of the 20th century.
The early variety begins to bear fruit at the end of May. The yield is average, with a fruit size of about 40 grams, it could be better if the variety had a tendency to form more ovaries. A tall, spreading bush with many light corrugated leaves looks attractive. The number of whiskers is moderate. The quality of the berries is 4 - 4.5 on a five-point scale. The color is red. The main disadvantage is the rapid loss of the presentation of the fruit due to their insufficient density.

Late strawberry Galya Chiv is classified as a large-fruited variety. On average, the berries reach a weight of 40 grams. Ripe berries are light pinkish-red in color, rounded. Long-term fruiting, within 20-30 days. The yield is good. The high content of sugary substances, dense structure of the pulp make the variety versatile in use. Excellent characteristics of keeping quality and transportability contribute to the industrial scale of cultivation of the variety.

Bred in 1981, the reference strawberry is common in most European countries. All reviews of Elsanta strawberries note a high ability to form fruits, an even size of berries, weighing 40-45 grams, a dense but delicate structure of the pulp. The color is lacquered red. The shape is spherical.

This is one of the very first ones brought to Russia from the Netherlands, as the reviews of the Korona strawberry variety on the websites of amateur gardeners tell. Small bushes amaze the imagination with an abundance of evened heart-shaped fruits from 17 to 32 grams. The color is lacquered red. Berries with a high content of sugary substances, dense, without voids. An average of 900 g to 1 kg is harvested from one plant. This is a good indicator for mid-early varieties.


Review of strawberry varieties for the Urals with photos and descriptions

Thanks to the fruitful work of breeders, the cultivation of garden strawberries in regions with cold climates has become quite commonplace. To get a bountiful harvest of juicy berries, you just need to choose the most suitable strawberry varieties and provide them with appropriate care.

What should be strawberries for the Urals

Strawberries in the Urals have to withstand all the vagaries of nature.

For the effective cultivation of this horticultural crop in the Urals, it is very important to choose not only sweet and fruitful varieties, but, first of all, those that are able to withstand the peculiarities of this climate:

  • Early maturity... Since the Urals are characterized by a short summer, strawberries must have time to fully ripen during this period. Otherwise, most of the crop may die with the arrival of the first frost.
  • Frost resistance... Strawberry seedlings that can tolerate low soil and air temperatures well have a greater chance of surviving the cold Ural winters without loss.
  • Resistant to rot... The variety must necessarily be resistant to all kinds of rot and bacterial diseases.
  • Strawberries must be able to withstand rainy weather without getting wet.... Often, prolonged heavy rains in the Urals are accompanied by a decrease in temperature. In addition, the soil in the northern regions is capable of retaining moisture for a long time, and it is necessary to choose the appropriate varieties.

To provide yourself with a bountiful harvest of strawberries throughout the summer and make supplies for the winter, experienced gardeners recommend planting several suitable varieties in one area at once: 2 early varieties, 2 mid-season, 1 late and a couple of remontant strawberries.

Early maturing varieties for the Urals

Due to the difficult climate of the Urals, preference should be given to varieties that ripen until mid-summer, since in the second half of July this region begins to rain.

Festival Chamomile

Stored and transported for a long time.

The variety consistently gives a bountiful harvest and has a universal value. It has increased resistance to many common ailments and is resistant to tick damage. It tolerates dry weather and severe frosts equally well.

  • In the first fruiting, the berries are large, weighing up to 40 g.
  • In the future, they become smaller: the weight decreases up to 15 g, and with subsequent harvests - up to 8 g.
  • Fruits are conical, with a rounded end, bright red, with a glossy surface.
  • The pulp is firm, with a characteristic aroma and taste.
  • Almost all fruits look very presentable, they lend themselves well to storage and transportation, due to which this variety is often grown for sale.

Repairing strawberry varieties for the Urals

Repaired varieties begin to ripen earlier, which is very important for a region with short summers.

The difference between remontant strawberries and ordinary ones is that they are capable of bearing fruit not once, but several times throughout the season.

At the same time, the taste, aroma and other qualities of such berries practically do not differ from standard varieties.

In addition, remontant strawberries have a number of advantages over garden strawberries:

  • Ripening of berries occurs a week earlier than that of conventional varieties.
  • Fruiting for a long time (with the arrival of summer and until the first autumn frosts).
  • The first flowers damaged during unexpected frosts are not a disaster for the gardener. After them, new ones will bloom, and the strawberry harvest will not suffer.
  • Repair strawberries are less often affected by gray rot and the main scourge of garden strawberries - the weevil.

About ampelous strawberry variety Temptation

We have already written in more detail about caring for ampelous strawberries.


4 best remontant strawberries

These are the most preferred varieties of all. First, let's figure out what this means. Repaired varieties (remontability) means the formation of berries throughout the season, in this case we are talking about the end of May and the beginning of September. During this time, each bush gives 2-3 harvests, depending on the quality of care and weather conditions.

In addition, such varieties are distinguished by an extreme degree of unpretentiousness - they do not care where they grow - in a greenhouse, in an open garden or in a pot on a balcony. With all the necessary nutrients and adequate lighting, the yield will be equally high.

So, we figured out what a remontant strawberry is, the best varieties of which are listed below.

Mara de Bois

It was first introduced by breeders at the end of 1990 as one of the best varieties for regions with unstable climatic conditions. These are really the best varieties of remontant strawberries for central Russia, the survival rate of which exceeds a record 95%. The berries are very sweet and aromatic, tolerate transportation well, retain their shape during long-term storage in containers.

Elizabeth 2

Domestic development specifically for cold regions. Despite the fact that the berries are not uniform in size, they are very sweet and aromatic. Recommended for freezing, canning, and it tolerates transportation well. The first harvest is obtained in the first decade of June, the last - at the end of September.

Albion

This variety was invented in California, where an average of 325-335 days of sunshine per year. Today Albion is one of the best strawberry varieties for the south of Russia due to its large leaves that protect the crop from burning out in the sun. The first harvest occurs at the end of May, the last at the end of September. The berries are large, sugary-sweet, very textured outwardly.

Temptation

A unique variety of garden strawberries, distinguished by the place where the berries grow - on the bush and mustache, taste - with notes of nutmeg, high yield - up to 3 kg per bush and increased fruiting - from mid-May to late September.

6 of the best early ripening strawberries

This variety of garden strawberries is notable for its early flowering and the appearance of the first harvest at the end of May. In the northern regions, in particular in the Urals and Siberia, such bushes suffer from the first frost, so they have to be plucked so that the plant does not waste energy on color. And although many of the following can hardly be called the best strawberry varieties for Siberia, if you grow them in a greenhouse or a well-insulated greenhouse, you can get a really great harvest already at the very beginning of summer.

In the south, all varieties give a crop strictly on schedule, the mustache does not freeze, although this also depends on the climate, and in general, early varieties are still better to grow in the southern regions.

Elsanta

A Dutch sample of taste and rapid growth, which has been tried in Russia for several years. Even today, it is recommended to grow in covered greenhouses, the roof of which is removed in early June. This makes it possible to preserve the first harvest and protect the bushes from freezing. Differs in a small number of mustaches, miniature rosette, but very large berries. The taste is very expressive, sweet, but with sourness. Suitable for canning, not very suitable for long-distance transportation.

These are really the best varieties of strawberries, which are ideal for the Moscow region, Leningrad region, Siberia and the Urals, that is, those regions where winters are severe, where the temperature often drops deep below 00C in winter. Asia has a very powerful root system that can withstand severe soil freezing. The berries are relatively large and slightly pressed down along the edges, which will give them a certain originality. The pulp is loose, but juicy and very sweet. Marks resistance to fungal and other parasitic diseases. Grows well in greenhouses, hotbeds and open ground.

Alba

Another very good variety of garden strawberries, as if specially bred for Russian winters. Moreover, despite the fact that the plant has very powerful roots, which allows it to endure frost and frost, even a short-term drought can destroy it. When deciding to plant this particular variety, you need to be aware that there should always be water, that the root zone should be moistened all the time. It is best to use drip irrigation, which can irrigate plants in a metered dose for a long time without human intervention.

Clery

This variety is often grown for sale, due to the fact that all ripe berries are exactly the same size, literally one to one. The plant is unpretentious to care, is resistant to diseases, can withstand frost and short-term drought. The berries are very aromatic and sugary-sweet, rich in vitamins and nutrients.

An early harvest of incredibly tasty and aromatic berries. From one bush, you can get up to 3 kg of harvest, but the plant itself is very difficult to grow. It is demanding with watering, fertilization, planting time and pruning of bushes. Extremely susceptible to strawberry mites, you need to carefully check the condition of the leaves in the morning. In addition, the strawberry leaves are low, covering both the flower stalks and the berries themselves, due to which they begin to rot. In order to avoid such putrefactive processes, it is recommended to use straw underlays under each bush - gently poke straw or dry grass around to prevent the berry from contact with the soil.

Marshmallow

One of the most prolific strawberry varieties of Danish origin. Tall bushes, an abundance of flower stalks, a rich harvest (3-4 kg from each bush), immunity to diseases - all this is ideal for the Russian climate with only one exception - in winter, the bush requires shelter. If the winter is snowy, then under a cap of snow, the bushes are able to withstand frost up to 40 degrees. If there is no such hat, all vegetation can be lost already at -50C. In advance, even if the winter is predicted to be snowy, cover the entire field with the remains of straw, dry manure, cellophane or cut branches - all this will make it possible to protect the strawberries from frost.

6 of the best large-fruited strawberries

In this category, the best varieties of remontant strawberries for central Russia, and early ripening ones, that is, those that give a large harvest. It's always nice to see and even more to taste berries, of which no more than 3 pieces fit in the palm of your hand.

Honey

Every second summer resident of Russia knows this kind of garden strawberry. An excellent variety with a strong root system, high-quality growth indicators. Harvest at the end of May and ends at the end of June. It features a large number of mustaches that can be cut off and dropped in autumn. The berries are large, very tasty with an incredible smell.

Gigantella

For home growing - ideal. The main difference is the spreading leaves, literally covering the ground, due to which the seedlings should be planted as far as possible from each other (the optimal distance is 50-60 cm between the bushes). The berries are large, up to 5 cm in diameter, the flesh is dense like a watermelon with a pronounced sugary taste. Loved by children, it has a colossal concentration of nutrients. Blooms in May, bears fruit from mid-June to mid-July.

Marvelous

This early maturing variety can be classified as the best for the Moscow region, Siberia and the northern regions due to its excellent frost resistance. If each bush is properly insulated, without exaggeration, any frost will pass, as they say, by. It is imperative in the fall, depending on when exactly the cold comes, all the bushes should be properly insulated, the mustache should be cut, dry manure should be placed, which will act as a kind of fuel and covered with cellophane, and covered with spruce paws or branches on top. Berries with a rather original taste are dryish, but very aromatic. Easily carry long distance transportation.

Festivalnaya

Known among summer residents and breeders for a large harvest. Up to 3 kg per season can be harvested from one bush, and this despite the fact that the variety is not repairable. The berries are bright, juicy, tasty, literally melt in your mouth. With an outer bright red shell, the flesh is pink inside, but this does not mean that the strawberries are not yet ripe - this is just such a feature. The plant is susceptible to disease and demanding care.

Chamora Turusi

It is believed that this variety was first developed in Japan, although there is no documentary evidence of this. It is actively grown in all countries, and especially in central Russia. The plant is known for its resistance to frost, sweltering heat, but susceptible to fungal infections. The fruits are large - up to 100 grams, each bush is simply strewn with berries. By the middle of the season, on the site where such a strawberry variety grows, there is not a single place free of berries.

Marshall

One of the oldest varieties, which was bred back in the 18th century. Bushes are tall, vigorous with a powerful root system. They tolerate drought and frost perfectly, they are immune to fungal diseases, but they are prone to wilting. The whiskers are long, strong, and take root well next year. The berries have an original glossy shine, due to which such strawberries are often grown on an industrial scale for sale. It tolerates transportation well. It is used both for consumption raw and for canning.

Of course, there are just an incredible number of strawberry varieties, and each of them is somehow better - in the abundance of the harvest, the number and size of berries, resistance to natural phenomena, etc. We tried to name only those varieties, the benefits and quality of which we were convinced ourselves, but nothing prevents us from continuing to experiment.
