Bred by the Scottish Crop Research Institute this variety will produce supermarket quality fruits that keep well. They have a uniform shape, well coloured flesh and a very tasty flavour. The plants are strong growing and have a good resistance to mildew.

  • 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 staring 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.
