Eliane

Dutch variety of garden strawberries with dessert and beautiful berries of early ripening. Bushes are large and fast growing. Peduncles are tall, strong, do not droop for a long time under the weight of berries. Mustache gives a lot. Berry in the form of a cone with a wide base, even and one-dimensional, there is a small neck, highly marketable, orange-red or scarlet, weighing from 20 to 90 g. The drupes are not pressed, so the berries do not rub during transportation. The pulp is dense, tender, dessert taste with floral and fruity notes, with a strawberry aroma. Suitable for refrigerator storage. A feature of the variety is the extended periods of flowering and ripening. It is quite resistant to diseases and pests, it is moderately affected by gray rot. In hot and dry weather during the ripening period, the berry becomes smaller, and excessive precipitation increases the acid content. Therefore, the variety does not perform well in extreme climatic conditions. In the Moscow region and the Middle zone, it winters only with shelter. In the Urals and Kamchatka, it often freezes out.

Main advantages:

  • great taste
  • a large percentage in the collection of berries of the 1st class

A very reliable variety of garden strawberries, but it lacks sweetness, it is necessary to wait for full ripening.

Honey

A time-tested American variety of garden strawberries from the early ripening group. Forms tall, spreading bushes with strong flower stalks. The foliage is weak, but the leaf is large. Mustache formation is moderate, which does not lead to rapid overgrowth of row spacing, but there will be no problems when laying new beds. The berry is short-conical, with a neck, aligned, dark red, shiny, retains a white tip for a long time, weighing 30-40 g. In the first collection, the berries may have an atypical shape due to poor pollination with such an early flowering. The pulp is dense, watery, fragrant, slightly colored, with obvious sourness, which begins to prevail in unfavorable weather (rainfall, cold snap). In order for the berry to “pick up” the taste, you need to wait for full intense coloring. Berries are well tolerated by transportation and storage in the refrigerator for several days. The variety forgives the mistakes of novice gardeners and gives good yields without increased attention. Shows resistance to spots and gray mold, but the root system is more vulnerable. Differs in good frost resistance and winter hardiness: in the Middle lane it safely winters without shelter. In the State Register for the Central, Central Black Earth and North Caucasian regions.

Main advantages:

  • early maturity
  • marketability and transportability
  • unpretentiousness
  • stable yield
Minuses:
  • average berry size
  • pronounced sour taste
