A new outstanding early strawberry!Bred by HRI East Malling, the home of so many of England's finest Strawberries. Alice has produced exceptional trial results and has been eagerly anticipated indeed. Cropping a week or more before Elsanta, the very regular conical berries have high percentage of Class 1 fruits and a most attractive shiny bright orange red skin. Everyone comments on the extremely sweet and juicy flavour and the bright attractive skin. Disease resistance is better than with the older earlies. Alice is a new variety sure to please with some very impressive qualities. Early ordering advised.
Allstar plants are medium to large, vigorous, runner freely, and form a dense matted row. Fruit is mild and sweet in flavor, and can be very large. Fruit is symmetrical and shapely. An introduction from 1981, named apparently for it's 'Allstar' performance.Ripens early June.
A really superb flavour and crops twice a year. The fruit is medium red, of good size and appearance and the flavour exceptional. It makes a medium to large plant and the fruit is well displayed. Aromel is an English variety raised by Mr R. Cumberland and was extensively tested at the Ministry of Agriculture Experimental Stations where it cropped well both outdoors and under tunnels, Its first crop is second early and heavier than that of other autumn fruiters. The later cropping period is August until the first frosts and to obtain a maximum autumn crop, remove the flowers as they form until the end of May. The size and quality of the fruit is outstanding, still a favourite autumn fruiting variety. Susceptible to Mildew in some areas.
A new everbearing variety from HRI East Malling which has a higher percentage of class 1 fruits and better fruit quality than older cultivars of this class. Bolero commences fruiting from mid-August, continuing through to the first frosts. Reports of an astonishing 90% class 1 fruits have been reported and the quality/fruit size does not deteriorate during hot weather. the plants have shown some resistance to Verticlluim Wilt, Crown Rot and mildew. The plants are vigorous and a slightly wider planting distance than normal is recommended.
We have reintroduced this very old favourite by popular request. Suffering surprisingly little from disease considering its age (last popular well over 30 years ago) the very dark green foliage partly hides the moderately sized torpedo shaped dark red juicy berries. As might be expected the flavour is superb. Stock limited.
A new ever-bearing variety from the institute of Horticulture Research East Malling. The fruits are very attractive and have a lovely flavour. Picking from July until the first frosts, the main picking period is in August and September. The fruits are predominately large and regular in shape with the advantage that the fruits maintain their quality in hot weather. Attractive bright shiny fruits with a lovely texture and flavour to match. Compact growth enables close planting. Good resistance to Verticillium Wilt. Calypso is excellent for dessert and exhibition. Large luscious fruits all summer long.
A day neutral variety raised in California which does best in warmer situations and is useful for protected and out of season cropping in the glasshouse, and can also provide worthwhile crops over an extended period outdoors if cloched. Fruit quality good, texture firm, flavour fair to good. Has better runner production than standard day neutral types. Somewhat virus resistant.Photo is generic.
Mid-season variety providing a heavy crop of quality fruit with a good flavour. Excellent for jam, and all purposes. Can also be grown under cloches and in pots, a regular and heavy cropper. The standard variety to which all other varieties are compared. We use the new improved Clone 3A from the Nuclear Stock Association.
Early mid-season, medium to large fruits of very good flavour and appearance. A good variety for a frost pocket because the blossom trusses develop late. In its maiden year this variety is early with exceptional flavour, in the second and third years mid-season with a very good flavour. The plants are large and upright and are also excellent for growing under cover, one of the best for growing in used gro-bags after tomatoes etc. have finished cropping. Specially recommended for flavour in its maiden year, this variety is a very old favourite, susceptible to Mildew.
