Type: Day Neutral/Everbearing

Albion

Market: Fresh

Season: Day-Neutral

Yield: High

Fruit Size: Large

My field value: Fruit is long, conical, symmetrical; firm with excellent flavor. Resists verticillium wilt, phytophthora crown rot and some resistance to anthracnose crown rot. Yield under the best of conditions is about one basket per plant per season. June bearers generally produce a single large crop in spring to early summer (as early as March in warmer regions such as Southern California and Florida) and are prolific producers for 3 to 4 weeks.

Aromas

Fruit Size:

My field value: Aromas is the most productive among Aromas, Diamante, and Pacific. It initiates production somewhat later than the others and produces large quantities of fall fruit. It also has the broadest environmental tolerance is more resistant to mildew than Selva, and is especially tolerant to spider mites. The plant architecture facilitates harvest and pest control (rather erect habit). Flavor is very good. Fruit size and cull rate is superior to Selva.

My field value: USDA release. Extremely winter hardy. Does well in colder areas except Alaska. (Alaska's long days inhibit fruit production) Also not recommended in the South. Large, bright scarlet fruit with dark pink to scarlet interior. Firm sweet flesh is exceptionally aromatic. Good for eating fresh, freezing and preserves. (Flavor a bit musty in our area) Self-fertile and pollinates in cool or warm temperatures. Vigorous; produces lots of runners and very heavy crop. Somewhat susceptible to mildew.

Seascape

Yield:

Fruit Size:

My field value: Named for a town near the Watsonville Strawberry Research Facility. The Seascape originated as a cross between Selva and Douglas and is a day-neutral similar to Selva. Seascape plants have a lower chilling requirement than Selva and are more vigorous. Highly tolerant of the virus diseases common in California, moderately susceptible to Leaf Spot. Fruit is symmetrically medium to long conic, almost as firm as Selva. Color is redder than Selva inside and out, with an attractive glossy finish. Noteworthy for high flavor, high yield, large fruit size, firmness, symmetry, attractive appearance and general flexibility in planting requirements.

Tribute

Market:

Season:

Yield:

Fruit Size:

My field value: (EB18 x MdU4258) Produces medium to small flavorful fruit - a favorite with home gardeners desiring good dessert quality berries all season long. The first year, Tristar will give its late season peak of production earlier than Tribute. But, for a steady harvest of strawberries, both varieties should be planted. It is resistant to both red stele and verticillium wilt. Excellent for use in patio gardens and/or hanging baskets.
