    The proven standard early strawberry variety, fruiting 4 - 6 days earlier than Elsanta. Bright, shiny, good quality fruits. Produces heavy yields with high percentage large fruit. This variety is often grown at Pick Your Own's so you can tell its a good cropper! Fruiting period (mid-June to mid-July)!

  • Garden care:
    Plants purchased as runners are sent out as dormant bare root plants and should be planted out within a couple of days of arrival. Soak the plants in tepid water for 20 minutes to rehydrate their roots while you dig holes twice the width of the root system. Place the strawberries with the crown level with the crown level with the soil and spread the roots before filling in the hole, incorporating plenty of organic matter.

    Plants purchased in pots, and as runners, can be spaced at 45cm (18in) apart, leaving 75cm (30in) between rows. Water thoroughly after planting and mulch around the base, avoiding the crown - they will put on new growth in spring. During warm weather and fruit growth, ensure plants are well-watered. Prevent fruit contact with soil by using a thick layer of straw, or re-usable strawberry collar around each plant. Strawberries can also be planted in tubs, containers and hanging baskets.
