Bumper crops of large fruits that have a deliciously sweet taste and firm flesh can be harvested from late June on this recently introduced strawberry. It is said to have a much lower incidence of producing misshapen fruits than many other types.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Clear all the weeds and apply a generous amount of well-rotted manure. When the strawberries are starting to form put a thick layer of straw or use strawberry mats under the plants to stop the fruit touching the soil. Sheets of black plastic mulch can also be used and it will also help retain soil moisture, reduce weeds and encourage early cropping. Strawberries can also be planted in tubs, containers and hanging baskets.
