TOP 5 varieties of strawberries

Strawberries are a sunny berry that is pleasant to eat both fresh and after cooking. I really want the bushes of garden strawberries to bear fruit all summer, and the berries amaze with their size, festive coloring and the taste of tender and fragrant pulp. We present to your attention 5 varieties of remontant strawberries that will make all your dreams come true.

Monterey (USA, California)

This variety of large-fruited remontant garden strawberries was registered in 2009. The source material was the popular variety Albion. Evaluating Monterey, experts say that the new product managed not only to inherit the best qualities of Albion, but also to surpass it in many respects.

Its advantages include:

  • productivity increased by as much as 35%;

  •  excellent taste characteristics of fruits;

  •  berries retain their shape and density well.

Unlike Albion, the fruits of the newcomer are not so hard: they do not crunch when biting. Ripening of berries occurs in three waves during the summer. Harvested in May, July and September.

The plant forms a fairly powerful bush. The mustache formation of the variety is considered not only moderate, but even meager, which greatly facilitates the care of the bushes. 10-14 strong peduncles per bush are not able to hold heavy and numerous ripe berries, laying them on the ground.

Burgundy-red with a glossy surface, the berries resemble hearts in their shape. When fully ripe, they acquire a cherry hue and a well-balanced sweet taste with a slight sourness.

This variety grows best in temperate climates. Its frost resistance is -25ºC. Monterey is resistant to diseases, loves sunlight, intensive feeding and maintaining distance during the planting process.

San Andreas (USA, California)

Another wonderful variety, bred by Californian breeders based on the same Albion, can also be classified as high-yielding and popular among both amateurs and professionals.

The undoubted advantages of the variety include:

  • the period of undulating fruiting lasts from May to October;

  •  dense berries tolerate transportation well;

  •  San Andreas does not suffer from many diseases characteristic of the species;

  •  The variety is resistant to spider mites.

San Andreas retained the density of the original variety, but not the excessive firmness of the berries. When biting into the berries of this variety, there will be no apple crunch.

Bush San Andreas is relatively compact: more plants can be placed on an equal area. A distinctive feature of the variety can be considered a powerful root system and up to 10 strong flower stalks on each bush. They can withstand the weight of ripe berries well, without dropping them on the ground. The plant has few mustaches.

Red berries with a shiny surface and a slightly flattened conical shape are slightly inferior in weight to Monterey fruits. They have red flesh with white veins and a pleasant sweet taste with a slight sour tinge.

The variety can withstand frost down to -25 ºC. He does not like heat: in especially hot periods, the yield of this garden strawberry can drop sharply. Bushes in the heat is better to shade.

Portola (USA, California)

An improved version of the Albion variety is the remontant garden strawberry Portola. This variety successfully takes root in our household plots. The fruits of the plant are not as large as those of the previous two varieties, but, due to their quantity, the autumn yield of Portola is 45% higher than that of the parent variety.

Other benefits of Portola are:

  •  two-stage fruiting, the main — in the fall until the frost;

  •  weather conditions and short daylight hours do not affect the volume of the crop;

  • berries have a good presentation, do not crunch when biting.

Despite the fact that the bush of the plant is quite high, it occupies a small area. Peduncles are located above the leaves, so they should be protected from the hot sun and birds. Mustaches are few, but they are. On a continuously fruiting bush, you can simultaneously observe flowers, green and ripe berries.

The average weight of a berry is from 30 to 40 grams. It has a wide conical shape, painted in red. Dense pulp without voids inside has a taste that is inherent not in dessert, but in industrial varieties — with pronounced sourness. Cloudy weather can affect the sugar content of the berries.

Wima Rina (Holland)

Vima Rina is a variety bred by specialists from the Dutch company Vissers. The original varieties were Vikoda and Wima Zanda. The Vima series created by this company, in addition to Wim Rin, includes two more varieties of large-fruited remontant strawberries.

We list the main advantages of this variety:

  •  berries are large in size and have a good taste;

  • fruiting lasts from early July until frost;

  • frost resistance is — 25ºC;

  •  high drought resistance and lack of response to weather changes;

  •  strong immunity to pests and diseases;

  • the crop is highly transportable.

The bush of the plant is strong and not too sprawling. Wim Rin’s mustache almost does not form. On the one hand, this facilitates the care of the plant, and, on the other hand, complicates its reproduction. The peduncles of the bush are approximately at the level of foliage, which greatly facilitates harvesting.

Large Wim Rin berries reach an average weight of 35-50 grams, but can significantly exceed it. The red berry in the form of an elongated cone has a delicate pulp with a sweet and sour taste and a pronounced aroma.

Anablanca (France)

Remontant garden strawberry Anablanca was bred by French breeders. This is an albino plant that is pleasant not only to eat, but also just to look at.

Advantages of this variety:

  •  unusual taste, reminiscent of pineapple;

  •  berries do not cause allergic reactions;

  • the plant is so drought-resistant that it goes without watering for a long time;

  • has immunity to diseases, well resists pests.

Small and very compact Anablanca bushes bear abundant fruit from mid-June to September. The berries of the culture are not striking in their large size, but there are many of them. A distinctive feature of the Anablanca fruits is their unusual white color with red seeds and pink flesh.
