Fragaria x ananassa 'Christine'

This new summer fruiting strawberry crops extremely early (10-14 days ahead of Elsanta) and sets new standards for fruit quality and disease resistance. The large bright red berries have an excellent flavour and good levels of natural sweetness. Good resistance to verticillium wilt and powdery mildew. Requires protection from frost.

 

Misted Tips are a new method of strawberry plant production used by commercial growers to maximize the maiden crop (the year after planting).  Now available to home gardeners, Misted Tip strawberry plants are produced by harvesting the best un-rooted runner tips from certified mother plants and rooting them into 4cm Ellepots under controlled conditions using a special mist propagation unit. Under these growing conditions very strong healthy plants are produced which will establish themselves very quickly once planted, improving the maiden crop by up to 100% compared to planting bare root strawberry runners in the autumn.

Bred in the U.K.  RHS Perfect for Pollinators


Season: early Summer (June - early July).


Available for delivery: mid August - late September.
